"My hair doctor just asked me to quit using my Rogaine/Minoxidil for 2 weeks because I have been having dizzy spells lately and all blood work/eye doctor/nuerologist have ruled out anything else that could be causing it. I'm terrified to go two…"
"Hello all! Went to a new derm today (didn't like my old one). I am already on Dutasteride and Minoxidil, but she is going to add CLOBETASOL PROP 0.05% SOLN 25ML . She said to just rub it in over my Minoxidil. …"
