    Hi Guys!
    I am a really newer poster and I am 47 years old with a thin crown and mid-anterior scalp is thinning. Front is pretty good considering everything. I am starting to talk with a well known HT specialist (respected on this forum) and I will be looking at all my options. I will say this about Rogaine. I have been on it for 5-6 years. I do have a puffy face and dark circles under my eyes. This seems to have started the last few years and I think I have had it before. Also, I have a low iron problem that can cause dark circles. I am glad I ran into this thread just because I never thought about rogaine possibly causing the circles and I still doubt its the causebut at least I can keep it on the list to consider. I tell you guys, I don't know what to do. I am so twisted about whether to let it go or what. I am horrified of Fin because I already take a SSRI which doesn't cause terrible sex sides but I do have a hard time finishing (Anorgasmia) some times- The girl loves it for obvious reasons. I want to do a HT but I have no idea whether that's a good idea or not at this time. Aso, looking at PRP/Acell so pray for me guys, I am lost. I am also dangerous because I can afford these things. I really want to try Fin first but dunno...

    For many women, minoxidil is enough to completely regrow hair...if you use the male amount! I have to wax and epilate more, but it's worth it.

    Also, for many men, minoxidil really is a long-term solution. My husband has been on it for a decade and went from a NW1 to NW0-1 and has stayed there. In 10 more years, who knows? But so far, so good.

    A lot of SSRIs cause hair loss in some people, BTW. And anorgasmia seems like a terrible sex side to me, but what do I know? I'm a woman.

    If you're getting Rogaine-related water retention, dark circles and puffiness is common. I've dug through the research and I'm not worried about skin aging anymore. I've also examined the husband's skin where he's been rubbing it on bare skin directly for 10 years, at the hairline. Looks good.
