Anyone who has stopped Minoxidil after several months and restarting again came back with good results?

I was so stupid to hav stopped using Minoxidil, now my hairloss is so much worse than before...and i ve jus restarted using it and my initial shedding is pretty serious...does anyone know if u restart Minoxidil it will help regain the hair u ve lost again?

Its a real unknown as very much an individual thing. I would recommend however sticking with it and seeing it thru this time rather than stop/start - This can cause drastic shedding.

Hey aiyosh,

I just experienced the same thing. I'm dying to know if anyone ever came back with results after restarting minox. Would love to hear your story.

Hey! I don't think you're stupid to have stopped. Eventually it stops becoming as potent anyways. I think it may be time to look into better solutions. Because I took the same path as you, but instead of going back- I found new options and solved my hair loss.

Step 1- Finasteride. Just swallow 1 pill a day, hasn't caused side effects. Super simple, easy, and effective. (really kicks in after a year)
Step 2- FUE hair transplant- Best decision of my life. Just had to do a lot of research on which Doc to choose.

Good luck! Keep me updated.
