I lose hair too, it happens for weeks or months at a time then stops and eventually starts back up again. For me I was losing hair before the medicine. We have no clue why, though a few beauticians have said my scalp looks irritated/inflammed- I switched shampoos and did a whole bunch of stuff to help it but it continues to be a problem. I dunno about rogaine, it makes me nervous considering some of the side effects I have heard about years ago.
