Difference between Propecia and Rogaine.

Postby dangrvs » Mon Mar 10, 2008 3:17 pm

Propecia (finasteride) is a pill that is taken orally in the dosage of 1mg of finasteride. If you are a male who is struggling with hair loss, you may want to try Propecia, which is an oral medication that has been effective in helping many people to regrow their hair. Propecia is available only by prescription so talk to your physician to see if this is an appropriate option for your condition.

Rogaine is used to treat male pattern baldness in patients who are experiencing gradually thinning hair on the top of the head. Rogaine (minoxodil) is a topical formula applied to the balding area in the recommended dosage 1ml applied twice daily. Rogaine works by stimulating the hair follicle which may increase the hair shaft diameter and elongate the anagen (growing) phase - thus regrowing hair. .

So, should you use finasteride or minoxidil? You may not need to choose. Some evidence suggests that the effectiveness of both medications used together is better than one used alone. But taking Propecia more than once per day or applying minoxidil more than twice a day will not lead to more hair growth.

Hi All

There is now published medical evidence that taking Propecia and 5% Regaine/Rogaine is slightly better than Propecia on its own....I would definately stick with Propecia as a first choice though.

I have used both, Propecia as well as Rogaine. Propecia is the best medicine for hair loss.
Propecia works differently with different people. It worked better for me than Rogaine.
Rogaine gave me stronger side effects where as side effects of propecia were mild.

After year and a half, today 80% of my receding hairline disappeared with negligible side effects.
