Regaine product information

Regaine contains 5% of an active ingredient called minoxidil. Minoxidil is thought to work by increasing blood flow to the hair follicles on the scalp, increasing hair growth and helping treating male pattern hair loss. It is available in solution and foam, depending on patient preference.

How to use

For Regaine solution: On dry and clean scalp, apply 1ml dose of Regaine twice daily on affected area, leaving at least 12 hours between each dose. 

For Regaine foam: On dry and clean scalp, apply 1g (equivalent to half a capful) dose of Regaine twice daily on affected area, leaving at least 12 hours between each dose.

You should wash your hands before and after applying treatment. It may take 2 months before you start noticing any improvement. For specific application instruction, please read patient information leaflet.

Side effects of Regaine

Like all medications, Regaine can cause some side effects, although not everyone gets them.

Some common side effects include headache and itching or excessive hair growth. Side effects are usually mild but if you are concerned, you should speak to a doctor of pharmacist.

Some uncommon but serious side effects include chest pain and allergic reactions. Symptoms of allergic reactions include difficulty breathing, swelling of lips, eyes or face, and an itchy rash. If you experience any of these serious side effects, you should stop using Regaine and seek urgent medical advice.

For a full list of side effects, please refer to the patient information leaflet.
