    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.

    I started to use the product only for 6 weeks and noticed all the hair has grown back in the small patch where it was balding. It's amazing! I'm not sure what will happen if I discontinue now that my hair has grown back, but I don't want to risk the benefits I've achieved by stopping using it. So I'll keep using it. Any advice?
