I've been using it only 2 weeks, but must quit. Like one other reviewer. I am starting to have constant numbness in hands and feet, including lower legs and arms. It won't go away. It interrupts my sleep. Plus mild dizziness has started. For me, this is a dangerous drug. I am tossing the rest.

Comment:
Saw growth at forehead after 3 mos. A year later my hair was fuller and my scalp no longer showed through. I have used minoxidil 2% without difficulty while flying etc. No negatives. Very pleased that my doctor prescribed it. I dab on with a small cotton ball X2 per day. Very easy.
