  • Your experience with eligard
    I started out with Firmagon in April 2013. They decided that I could be alergic to it after my belly swelled up and turned red. Switched to Eligard January 2014. The eligard causes more unwanted symptoms than the Firmagon.

    I would like to just stop taking this drug even though it has reduced my PSA to under 1 and the testosterone is where they like to see it. I am doing a number of natural things involving the diet. Many people believe that this can work to bring about a remission. Of course, while I am taking the drug to lower these markers, I can not know what the natural protocols are doing with the cancer. The only way to know this is to go off the medication intermitantly or for good.

    If anyone has been in this situation and stopped the HDT, I would like to hear your experience.

    Thanks,

    Rich
  • Any reports on side effects from using topical minoxidil such as vertigo and severe joint paiin
    Had used the topical solution of minoxidil, rogaine for about 8-9 months , did not regrow hair, but since then I've been experiencing severe joint aches on feet, knees,arms,neck and shoulders. Also severe vertigo dizziness when I first lie down. I do to be honest have had a problem with back and shoulder pain, I've experienced when using a sugar substitute. I have gotten better since, and stopped using them, for years ,until I used the rogaine ,these symtoms have returned and have gotten much worse. I've also have had vertigo before, but not more then days , sometime a month. But after using the rogaine , I've experienced severe vertigo for over four months.
  • Did you use minoxidol 2% before being diagnosed with breast cancer
    I am wondering whether there is a relationship between the use of tranquillizers for 35 years and Rogaine for about 15 years. I only use the Rogaine 2% once in the morning and diazepam 5 mg as needed. I have generalized anxiety disorder. Diagnosed and treated for breast cancer type 2 in 2010... still worried about a recurrence.
  • I have an enlarged prostate is rogain bad for my prostate
    I just started using Rogain and have noticed a reduction in urine flow
  • Minoxidil racing my heart beat can i continue using it?
    I am using Equate Extra Strength For Men Hair Regrowth, this usage increasing my hear rate, nit very serious, can I continue using it? I want my hair back. Please advice.

  • 5 years on rogaine use
    Im uncertain if any connection but I have been using Rogaine Foam for approx 5 years and early last year i developed a Melanoma directly in the area of use.

    I am curious to see if many others have had similar experiences.

    For the record my yearly checkup caught the Melanoma early and it was removed (twice) successfully.
  • Minoxidil (vesicular eczema)
    I began using topical Minoxidil and noticed about one month later small round fluid filled blisters on one finger on my left hand. The blisters were tender and I felt relief when I popped them. The skin inside was tender for a few days until it dried out. Then I developed the same blisters on one finger on my right hand. This went on for several months. Blisters were constantly forming on those fingers no matter what topical treatments I tried to resolve them. I felt it was due to the Minoxidil and after some research discovered others reported a similar reaction. The blisters resolved after stopping the Minoxidil. I switched to a product from Life Extension Super Saw Palmetto Nettle Root Formula with Beta-Sitosterol. The results were better than Minoxidil and I did not get any painful blisters on my fingers. What a relief.
  • Happened to me- allergic reaction to rogaine
    Within the first week of usage, I began to have leg cramps, facial swelling, tightness of breath, chest pain, anxiety, and chronic headaches. Even with allergy medicines and aspirin, nothing seemed to help. At first, I felt it was though it was just simple allergies until I woke up one morning with my face so swollen that I could see my skin around my eyes without looking in a mirror. My throat began to swell to the point it was difficult to swallow. I immediately went to the ER to receive a shot and sleep all day with Benadryl. The following day, I have redness in the skin and hoarseness. The doctor told me too never touch Rogaine again or I would end up in the hospital (or worse).

  • From this study (3 months ago):

  • It has been almost two months that abovementoined symptoms have occurred. I am, particularly at night, afraid that if I make sound, people or neighbours may become upset. When I hear something, even the sound of elevator, I jump and think that they are coming to warn me that I did something that disturbed them. The worst part is that I know I did not, I use headset and live in one room of my house alone. In fact, I live alone in a 140 square meter and I prefer to stay only in one room.
