1. What Regaine Foam is and what it is used for
Regaine contains minoxidil. Minoxidil regrows hair and stabilizes hair loss in men with a receding hairline and crown balding by revitalization of hair follicles.
Regaine is used to treat men with common hereditary hair loss (also called androgenetic alopecia). It is to be used only on the scalp (head)
2. What you need to know before you use Regaine Foam
Do not use Regaine Foam if you
- are allergic to minoxidil or any of the other ingredients of this medicine (listed in section 6).
Warning and precautions
Talk to your doctor or pharmacist before using Regaine if you
- suffer from heart disease including abnormal heart rhythms or rates, angina or chest pains and/or circulation disorders.
When minoxidil passes into the blood stream it can cause some side-effects related to low blood pressure such as chest pain, rapid heartbeat, faintness, dizziness, sudden unexplained weight gain or swollen hands and feet. It can also cause persistent redness or irritation of the scalp. If you experience any of these side effects stop using the medicine and tell your doctor.
Some patients have experienced changes in hair colour and texture with this medicine.
Increased hair shedding (old hairs fall out as new hairs grow in their place) may occur during the initial 2 to 6 weeks of treatment. This is a sign that it works and that new hairs are replacing old hairs). This should stop within a couple of weeks. If shedding persists, stop using Regaine and talk to your doctor.
Accidental ingestion may cause serious cardiac adverse events. Therefore this product has to be kept out of the reach of children.
If the foam is accidentally applied to areas of the body other than the scalp, rinse thoroughly with plenty of water to avoid any unwanted hair growth.
You should not use Regaine if
 the pattern of your hair loss differs from a receding hair line and crown balding
 you have no family history of hair loss
 your hair loss is sudden and/or patchy
 you do not know the reason for your hair loss
 your scalp is inflamed, infected, irritated or painful.
Avoid fire, flame, or smoking during and immediately following application.
Children and adolescents
Regaine should not be used by children and adolescents below 18 years.
Other medicines and Regaine Foam
Tell your doctor or pharmacist if you are taking, have recently taken or might take any other medicines.
Regaine should not be used together with other medications applied to the scalp.
Other cosmetic hair products and Regaine
Use of shampoo during treatment
You should use a mild shampoo when using Regaine. Your scalp must be dry before you apply Regaine.
Use of hair grooming products during treatment
For best results, Regaine should be allowed to soak into the scalp before using any styling products. Apply Regaine first, and then apply your styling products as usual. Do not mix with other preparation for use on the scalp.
Advice about hair colour or perming
There is no available information if these treatments change the effect of Regaine. However, to avoid possible scalp irritation, you should make sure all of the Regaine has been washed off the hair and scalp before using these chemicals. Also, you should tell your hair care professional that you are using Regaine.
Pregnancy, breastfeeding and fertility
Regaine Foam is not for use by women.
This medicine is not recommended during pregnancy, lactation or when trying to conceive.
Driving and using machines
Regaine may cause dizziness or low blood pressure. If you experience these side-effects do not drive or operate machinery.
Regaine Foam contains:
Ethanol (alcohol) which may cause burning and/or irritation if you get it accidentally in your eye. If you get Regaine Foam in your eye, mouth or a cut or damaged skin, wash the area well with plenty of cool tap water.
Butylated hydroxytoluene which may cause local skin reactions (e.g. contact dermatitis), or irritation to the eyes and mucous membranes.
Cetyl alcohol and stearyl alcohol which may cause local skin reactions (e.g. contact dermatitis).
3. How to use Regaine Foam
Always use this medicine exactly as described in this leaflet or as your doctor, pharmacist or nurse has told you. Check with your doctor or pharmacist if you are not sure.
Use this foam twice a day to achieve and maintain the desired effect on hair growth.
This foam is for use on the normal healthy scalp only. It should NOT be used on inflamed, infected, irritated or painful scalp skin. Do NOT apply on other parts of the body.
Make sure to apply the foam directly to the scalp.
Avoid contact with the eyes. If you get the foam in your eyes, rinse your eyes immediately with plenty of cool tap water.
Before using the foam:
Your hair and scalp should be dry.
How to apply the foam:
Apply a dose of 1 g (equivalent to the volume of half a capful) to the hair loss area twice a day.
To open the container, match the arrow on the can ring with the arrow on the cap. Remove the cap (Figure 1).
The foam may begin to melt on contact with warm skin. If your fingers are warm, rinse them in cold water first. Be sure to dry them thoroughly before handling the foam.
Hold the can upside down and press the nozzle to dispense the foam product onto your fingertips (Figure 2). The total amount of foam applied should not be more than 1g (equivalent to the volume of half a capful).
Using your fingers, massage the foam lightly into the affected areas of the scalp (Figure 3) and then wash your hands immediately after applying the foam.
After each use, close the container by snapping the cap back onto the can.

Duration of use with Regaine
It takes time to regrow hair. Results may occur at 2 months with twice a day usage. For some men you
may need to use this product for at least 4 months before you see results.
What to expect while using Regaine Foam
In the first couple of months, some users may experience increased hair shedding after using this foam
for the first time. This can be a sign that Regaine is working. This temporary increase in hair shedding
generally occurs between 2 and 6 weeks after beginning of treatment and then subsides.
If increased shedding continues after 6 weeks, see your doctor.
Hair is usually soft, downy and colourless. After further use, the new hair should be the same colour
and thickness as the other hairs on your head. Since hair grows slowly, Regaine takes time to work.
Results may be seen in 2-4 months with twice a day use.
If there’s no hair regrowth after 4 months, then stop using Regaine
The amount of hair re-growth is different for each person. This product will not work for all men.
Continued use is necessary to increase and maintain hair re-growth, or hair loss will begin again.
If you use more Regaine Foam than you should
Follow directions for use. Do not use more than 2 g (equivalent to the volume of one capful) in a day,
and do not use more than twice a day. Your hair will not regrow any quicker and you will not get any
better effect if you use more or if you use it more often.
If a child swallows any Regaine Foam, take him/her to a hospital immediately (with the Regaine
Foam can if possible, as the doctor may like to have some idea of how much the child has swallowed).
If you forget to use Regaine Foam
Do not worry if you miss one or two applications, just continue to use the product as though you had
not missed the dose. Do not put double the amount on your scalp if you forget an application as
excessive use may cause low blood pressure, fast heartbeat and drowsiness or tiredness.
If you stop using Regaine Foam
If you stop using the foam, regrown hair may fall out and your scalp will likely return to its former
state within 3-4 months.
If you have any further questions on the use of this product, ask your doctor or pharmacist.
