If you are having undesired effects due to Rogaine or minoxidil it is best to contact your doctor. It is not clear why your hair may be shedding. It may be a unwanted side effect.
Shedding of hair and Minoxidil
During initial use of Minoxidil you may experience some hair shedding. This is a temporary condition. Make sure you are applying Minoxidil as directed on to the scalp and not the hair. Should the hair shedding persist you are encouraged to consult with a hair restoration specialist.
Initial shedding after using minoxidil
Any medical hair treatment should be done under doctor's supervision. some people report getting initial shedding after using minoxidil. If shedding is persistent and continues, follow up with your doctor.
Hair loss -- PRP, Progesterone, Viviscal, Rogaine, Finesteride, Spironolactone
Some users report shedding the first 6-8 weeks of using Minoxidil. It is most likely that you are just noticing hair loss that was present prior to the use of Minoxidil. I suggest a formal consultation to determine what type of loss you have and what treatment options you have. Best, Dr. Emer
