Rogaine and puffy dark eyes
avatar
ditzyhorse posted:
I started Rogaine 4 1/2 weeks ago. About two weeks in I noticed the huge shed I was warned about but about 4 days ago I developed swollen eyes and huge dark circles. Nothing else has changed in my life. Am I allergic?

I know the experts think this is all bunk but seriously. This is the WORSE case of puffy eyes I've ever experienced. I'm thinking of discontinuing and dealing with less hair as I age. I look 10 years older with this. It's awful.

p.s. it's the generic Monoxidol
