Do hair loss medications have side effects?
Many men choose to take hair loss medication when they notice their hair isn’t as thick as it used to be, or when their hairline begins to recede. This is because hair loss medications such as finasteride and minoxidil have been proven to reduce and reverse hair loss in men with male pattern baldness.
What if minoxidil doesn't work for me?
Minoxidil is one of the most convenient non-prescription hair loss treatments for male pattern baldness. For most men, it only takes a few sprays of minoxidil a day to reverse hair loss at the temples and crown of the head, which is why it’s a popular choice for men with receding hairlines.
