A while back I began using Rogaine 2% and found after a number of months that it worked well for me. I have always have very thick dense hair in my youth. I then tried the newer 5% Rogaine and found that it worked even better, including additional hair growth of the hairline, though not a great deal. Going on this premise that the higher concentrations offer myself additional hair growth I am interested in trying even higher concentrations. I hear that they are available up to 15%. What would you advise, should I attempt it and how high a concentration can I use safely. I have not had any adverse reactions in the year that I have used these products. I am a male 50 years old.
Some doctors regularly formulate 15% minoxidil. I am sure that if there are no side effects you experience (such as blood pressure drop manifested by light headed feeling), then it would probably be more effective. Just a guess on my part and it would require a doctor’s involvement.
