    Dr. Baxa i've been using rogaine/regaine now for 2 weeks and my hair has really started to thin out on top after using it. Before i started using rogaine my hair was already thin on top, but now it really started to thin out. I'm considering it stop using the product and maybe move on to something else. I was wondering what other hair loss products/shampoos etc you would recommend i use..I'm considering using nisim, is it any good? I'm only 21 and this is a realy blow to my self esteem, its kinda depressing looking in the mirror every day any seeing a young guy with a receding hairline!

    Default Still losing

    Thanks for your response Dr. Baxa!

    I keep hearing that Rogaine will not cause me to lose more hair, but I'm still losing hair even though i stopped using Rogaine 4 months ago. This is after having only using it for 3weeks. I had no bald spots and had a decent amount of hair prior to Rogaine and now my hair is extremely thin and i am developing patches of bald spots. I have been extremely depressed over this. Can you tell me how long the "accelerated shed" is supposed to last? Will the hair that has been shedding grow back. I am extremely worried that I just killed my hair folicles. Also, if I was not going to be completely bald will I now go bald do to the use of Rogaine?

    Please help...

    Thanks so much for your time.

    Hey JMay83

    How has the battle been going? Has your hair improved at all since you stopped Rogaine? This is killing me man. My hair just keeps getting worse. Is there any light at the end of the tunnel?

    Hello 'Danger0613,

    I am sure from your response that you are indeed very concerned about your current hair loss or shedding. However, please know that I have never read any medical articles that indeed show that Rogaine can be responsible for continued hair loss after it has been stopped.

    What is important for you, is to realize that 'Stress' can also be a factor in continued hair loss. I know that this is simple to state and sometimes very hard to accomplish ... But we see this following major hospital surgeries when a patient has been 'stressed' by anesthesia or the operation itself. So 'Stress' can be a factor in increased hair loss.

    The fact of the matter is that now that you have stopped the rogaine ... you should soon stablize and ... 'if' you are to have continued hair loss, it will be because of your genetic predisposition to have continued hair loss and not the rogaine.

    But also consider the 'stress' factor.

    I wish you the best!

    Mark D. Baxa, MD

    Hey Constantine,
    What you are experiencing is completely normal and happens to a relatively large percentage of guys who start Propecia. Eventually the increased shedding should slow down, so I wouldn't be too concerned. There is no clinical data indicating the best time to take Propecia, just try to take it around the same time every day if possible.
