Rogaine and TE
Rogaine is on of the few medications that are used for Telogen Effluvium, however, it rarely stops the condition.
Regaine (minoxidil) for telogen effluvium
If telogen effluvium is the only diagnosis you have, stopping Regaine (minoxidil) will likely not make things worse. The main issue is that most people don't "only" have telogen effluvium. There are other diagnoses present as well. These other diagnoses may in fact be very response to Regaine, Rogaine and minoxidil. In this case, yes, most certainly stopping can lead to further loss.
Get expert advice if you're not sure how to proceed. An up close examination, review of your history, medications, and blood test results is essential to develop a comprehensive plan.
