Side Effects

Before using Regaine for Women Regular Strength, the user should determine that the scalp is normal and healthy. Topical minoxidil should not be applied to inflamed, infected, irritated or painful scalp skin (see section 4.3).

Topical minoxidil is only indicated for the treatment of alopecia androgenetica and should not be used in other types of hair loss for example when there is no family history of hair loss, hair loss is sudden and/or patchy, hair loss is due to childbirth or the reason for hair loss is unknown.

The patient should stop using Regaine for Women Regular Strength and see a doctor if hypotension is detected or if the patient is experiencing chest pain, rapid heart beat, faintness or dizziness, sudden unexplained weight gain, swollen hands or feet or persistent redness or irritation of the scalp or other unexpected new symptoms occur (see section 4.8).

Patients with known cardiovascular disease or cardiac arrhythmia should contact a physician before using Regaine for Women Regular Strength.

Some patients have experienced changes in hair colour and/or texture with use of Regaine for Women Regular Strength.

Regaine for Women Regular Strength is for external use only. Do not apply to areas of the body other than the scalp.

Using more than the recommended dose or more often will not improve results.

Unwanted hair growth may be caused by the transfer of the product to areas other than the scalp.

Hands should be washed thoroughly after applying the solution. Inhalation of the spray mist should be avoided.

Some consumers reported increased hair shedding upon initiation of therapy with Regaine for Women Regular Strength. This is most likely due to minoxidil’s action of shifting hairs from the resting telogen phase to the growing anagen phase (old hairs fall out as new hairs grow in their place). This temporary increase in hair shedding generally occurs two to six weeks after beginning treatment and subsides within a couple of weeks. If shedding persists (>2 weeks), users should stop using Regaine for Women Regular Strength and consult their doctor.

Users should be aware that, whilst extensive use of Regaine for Women Regular Strength has not revealed evidence that sufficient minoxidil is absorbed to have systemic effects, greater absorption because of misuse, individual variability, unusual sensitivity or decreased integrity of the epidermal barrier caused by inflammation or disease processes in the skin (e.g. excoriations of the scalp, or scalp psoriasis) could lead, at least theoretically, to systemic effects.

Accidental ingestion may cause serious cardiac adverse events. Therefore this product has to be kept out of the reach of children.

Regaine for Women Regular Strength contains ethanol (alcohol), which will cause burning and irritation of the eye. In the event of accidental contact with sensitive surfaces (eye, abraded skin and mucous membranes) the area should be bathed with large amounts of cool tap water.

Regaine for Women Regular Strength contains propylene glycol, which may cause skin irritation.

Patients should be advised to consult their doctor or pharmacist if they are concerned at any time during treatment with Regaine for Women Regular Strength.
