Minoxidil is the generic name, the name of the drug, Rogaine/Regaine are brand names. Like Finasteride and Propecia, Finasteride's the drug, Propecia's a brand.

Some brands contain different % of drug, so it's worth checking out, Minoxidil should be around 5% to be effective, although I think you can get 2% as well

Minoxidil is an antihypertensive vasodilator medication which also slows or stops hair loss and promotes hair regrowth. Now off-patent, it is available over-the-counter for the treatment of androgenic alopecia
