Hello, I am looking to use rogaine to regrow my hair. But before i use this product i have a history of heart palpitations and have had two episodes of atrial fib. I am 30 years old and am otherwise very healthy. the doctors never found anything wrong with my body to be causing atrial fib. my question is, can i use rogaine? and if not what can i use otherwise to stop my hair loss and regrow my hair
Minoxidil (Rogaine) can cause heart palpitations on rare occasions, but with your history of cardiac issues, I suspect that your doctor can better advise you about whether it’ll be safe for you to use it. Please ask this question to your doctor.
I think you would be better off asking your doctor about Propecia (finasteride) to treat your hair loss. It is a prescription medication, and it doesn’t have the heart-related side effect risks.
