According to the company website, Rogaine® hair loss treatment is the only medication (topical) that has been clinically approved by the FDA. A direct contradiction with many hair growth formulas that also claim the privilege of being effective formulas for hair growth approved by the same department of the US government.
The disadvantages of Rogaine® include some symptoms of irritation for those who are not naturally akin to using the drug. Irritations occur on the scalp area - moderate to sever itching, the reddening of the skin, etc. Such moderate symptoms may or may not disappear. If the symptoms persist and little improvement is seen, the use of Rogaine® should be discontinued.
As stated by the company-provided product information, it takes an average of four months before you see any improvements. By then, you would have spent a considerable amount of money for your twice-a-day treatment of your balding.
