View Full Version : Stopping Minoxidil during shedding?

03-01-2011, 04:20 PM
Hey everyone

Ok, so I have done my research but I cant seem to find the answer to this so any help is appreciated!

Im 21 years old and I noticed a bit of thinning, but nothing huge. Anyways, I decided to use minoxidil 5. After about 2 weeks I started noticing the shedding that comes naturally with it. I am not happy with the amount of hair being lost and dont think I could stick it out if the shedding could continue for up to 2 months.

My questions are:

If I quit now, will the hair I shed while I was on minoxidil grow back, ultimately leading to back how I looked before using it?

and, how long would it take for the shedding to stop once I am completely off using it?

thanks in advance!

Is it similar to heavy weight lifting, as in that it would greatly raise testosterone. Also, what if you were on Finasteride doing the sport, would it help, considering there is no heavy weight lifting involved, or weight lifting in general?
