    Default Quitting Rogaine Foam after using once a day for two months

    I'm 18 years old. I've been using rogaine for about two months now about once a day on one temple and a small thinning spot on my forelock. I didn't really use that much but for some reason i've been getting side effects, such as heart palpitations and facial water retention, especially under the eyes. I've also gone through a shedding phase and the areas where the foam was applied is a lot worse than baseline. I've decided to quit and I was wondering if I could stop cold turkey since I've already experienced a shed, I just don't want things to get even worse, I just want to return back to baseline, the hairs i shed with rogaine should grow back right?

    Hello michael94,

    Honestly, you have not used enough of the medication to cause side effects. You have also not used it long enough to make a difference either. If you want to stop, stop.

    The hairs you shed on Rogaine should grow back unless they were on their way out anyway (due to DHT).
