View Full Version : Can Minox make things worse?

06-25-2015, 03:14 PM
I am contemplating starting adding Minox to my regimen (I am only taking 1mg of Fin at the moment).

Can Minox actually make things worse? For example, can healthy hairs become dependent on it? Have people reported not getting any gains from Minox, but having bad side effects from it, or losing more hair when they come off?

Just trying to do the usual risk/benefit analysis.

In theory, minox only slows or stops hair loss for a while. So, whatever benefit it gives you is from stopping what would have happened. It doesnt change your course, just alters timeline a bit.
Another way of saying it is, minox may speed/slow hair loss but in the case of getting hair loss on minox and/or after it......that is hair loss you would have had anyway.
