Absolutely, I hear what you're saying yet I am quite concerned, the last thing I wanna do is loose the existing hair, also, after reading through the forums over here it appears that a lot of people have had some rather bad experiences with minoxidil.
I'm using the generic minoxidil, the pharmacy I purchased it from only had one 5% in stock so thought I'd start off with 2% and then move onto the 5% to kind of ease into it. I'm just about done with the 2% so should be starting the 5% in the next week or two.
I must admit I'm very much in two minds currently as the shedding is rather significant. Reckon based on the replies I get on this forum I'll make a more informed decision as to continue using the minoxidil.
