I was on the men’s extra strength 5% rogaine foam for about a year, with spironolactone too. It has been beneficial for both my eyebrows and hair to some degree, but it has also caused a distressing amount of facial hair in almost every part of my face you could imagine, particularly my temples and jawline. I have never had facial hair before, and constantly trying to remove it just to look normal is both stressful and has had a negative effect on my once nearly perfectly smooth, flawless skin. So now I have decided to switch to the 2% liquid, in hopes that the facial hair will cease, and also because I’ve read that in females there’s no significant advantage recorded in using the 5% vs the 2%. However, in the last 2 weeks I’ve switched, my hair has been falling out like crazy. Is the 2% therefore really that much less effective?
Based on what you are saying, it would seem that the 2% is less effective for you. I don’t think I can add any more input. If everything you are doing is exactly the same and nothing has changed except changing the medication, it would be the next logical assumption.
