I am female, currently taking Diovan/hct and Synthorid. I have tried Rogaine, however I had a reaction from it (my face became very puffy and swollen). Once I stopped, the swelling stopped. Do you think I would have the same reaction with minoxidil? There is also a product called Advecia. Any feedback on this would be greatly appreciated. The hair loss is so depressing. Thank you for your time
Advecia (according to the search I performed online), contains:
- Saw Palmetto Extract 4:1 37.5 mg
- Green Tea Extract 600 mg
- Phytosterol Complex
- Beta Sitosteral 125 mg
- L- Arginine 1500 mg
- L-Lysine 600 mg
- Grape Seed Extract
- Proanthocyanidins 265 mg
Frankly, I don’t have any idea if this works. Your guess is as good as mine.
With regard to minoxidil, the symptoms you listed are known side effects possibly reflecting either an allergy to the medications or an unusual topical reaction to it.
