HAIR REGROWTH TREATMENT

- Hair regrowth treatment
- Previously available only by prescription
Over 30 million American women experience hair thinning or hair loss, so you’re not alone. REGOXIDINE contains the only ingredient that is medically proven effective to help regrow hair in women.
Please read this leaflet carefully. It will help you understand how to use REGOXIDINE and what to expect from its use. If you have any questions after reading this leaflet, or anytime while using REGOXIDINE, you should ask your health care professional or call us at +1 800-966-5122, you can also visit our website at www.innovuspharma.com.
What is WOMEN’S REGOXIDINE?
REGOXIDINE is a colorless liquid medication for use only on the top of the scalp to help regrow hair.
Who may use WOMEN’S REGOXIDINE?
REGOXIDINE may be appropriate for you if you are an adult who is at least 18 years old and experiencing gradually thinning hair or gradual hair loss on the top of the head. The common hereditary thinning or hair loss process begins slowly and may become noticeable only after years of gradual loss. REGOXIDINE is for general thinning of hair on the top of the scalp as shown in the illustration below. REGOXIDINE has been shown to regrow hair in women with the degrees of hair loss shown. If women have more hair loss than shown, REGOXIDINE may not work. Many of those experiencing hair loss have other family members with gradual thinning hair or hair loss. If there is no family history of gradual thinning or gradual hair loss, or hair loss is patchy, talk to your doctor.
Who should NOT use WOMEN’S REGOXIDINE?
REGOXIDINE will not prevent or improve hair loss related to pregnancy, the use of some prescription and non-prescription medications, certain severe nutritional problems (very low body iron; excessive vitamin A intake), the recently discontinued use of birth control pills, low thyroid states (hypothyroidism), chemotherapy, or diseases which cause scarring of the scalp. Also, REGOXIDINE will not improve hair loss due to:
• damage from the use of hair care products which cause scarring or deep burns of the scalp.
• hair grooming methods such as cornrowing or ponytails which require pulling the hair tightly back from the scalp.
Do not use REGOXIDINE if hair loss is patchy as shown below.
You should ask your doctor if you are unsure of the cause of your hair loss.
Will WOMEN’S REGOXIDINE work for me?
The amount of hair regrowth is different for each person. Not everyone will respond to REGOXIDINE. The response to REGOXIDINE cannot be predicted. No one will be able to grow back all their hair. In clinical studies of mostly white women aged 18-45 years with mild to moderate degrees of hair loss, the following response to Minoxidil topical solution 2% was reported:
19% of women reported moderate hair regrowth after using Minoxidil topical solution 2% for 8 months (19% had moderate regrowth. 40% had minimal regrowth). This compared with 7% of women reporting moderate hair regrowth after using placebo, the liquid without minoxidil in it, for 8 months (7% had moderate regrowth. 33% had minimal regrowth).
What Minimal, Moderate and Dense Hair Regrowth Will Mean For You?
Can WOMEN’S REGOXIDINE be used to prevent hair loss?
We do not know if REGOXIDINE will prevent hair loss.
How soon can I expect results from using WOMEN’S REGOXIDINE?
Since normal hair usually grows only 1/2 to 1 inch per month, hair regrowth with REGOXIDINE also takes time. Generally new hair growth is slow for a REGOXIDINE user. Continued use of 2 times a day for at least 4 months is usually needed before you notice hair regrowth. If you do not see hair regrowth in 4 months, stop using REGOXIDINE and see your doctor. When you first begin to use REGOXIDINE, your hair loss may continue for up to 2 weeks. This hair loss is temporary. If you continue to lose hair after two weeks, see your doctor.
If WOMEN’S REGOXIDINE is working, what will the hair look like?
At first, hair growth may be soft, downy, colorless hairs. After further use, the new hairs should be the same color and thickness as the other hairs on your scalp.
How long do I need to use WOMEN’S REGOXIDINE?
If you respond to REGOXIDINE, you will need to use it 2 times a day to keep and continue the hair regrowth. Up to 8 months of usage may be needed to see your best results from REGOXIDINE.
What happens if I completely stop using WOMEN’S REGOXIDINE? Will I keep the new hair?
Continuous use of REGOXIDINE is needed to maintain hair regrowth. If you stop using REGOXIDINE, the normal hair loss process will start again. You will probably lose your newly regrown hair in three to four months.
What is the dosage of WOMEN’S REGOXIDINE?
You should apply a dose (1 mL) of REGOXIDINE directly onto the scalp in the hair loss area TWO TIMES A DAY; for example, once in the morning and once at night. Each bottle should last about one month, if used as directed. Please refer to the "Directions for Use" section of this leaflet.
What if I miss a dose or forget to use WOMEN’S REGOXIDINE?
If you miss one or two daily doses of REGOXIDINE, just continue with your next dose. You should not make up for missed doses.
Can I use WOMEN’S REGOXIDINE more than two times a day? Will it work faster, better?
No. REGOXIDINE will not work faster or better if used more than two times a day. Studies have been carefully conducted to determine the correct amount of REGOXIDINE needed to get the best results. More frequent use or larger doses have not been shown to speed up hair growth and may increase your chances of side effects.
What are the most common side effects with WOMEN’S REGOXIDINE?
The most common side effects are itching and other skin irritations of the treated area of the scalp. REGOXIDINE contains alcohol, which would cause burning or irritation of the eyes or sensitive skin areas. If REGOXIDINE accidentally gets into these areas, rinse with large amounts of cool tap water. Contact your doctor if irritation persists.
What kind of shampoo should I use with WOMEN’S REGOXIDINE?
If you wash your scalp before applying REGOXIDINE, use a mild shampoo.
Can I use hair sprays, mousses, conditioners, gels, etc.?
Yes. There is no need to change your usual hair care routine when using REGOXIDINE. However, you should apply REGOXIDINE first and wait for it to dry before applying your styling aids.
Can I have my hair colored or permed or use hair relaxers while using WOMEN’S REGOXIDINE?
Yes. We have no information that these treatments change the effect of REGOXIDINE. However, to avoid possible scalp irritation, you should make sure all of the REGOXIDINE has been washed off the hair and scalp before using these chemicals.
Can I apply WOMEN’S REGOXIDINE and wash my hair an hour later?
No. For REGOXIDINE to work best, you should allow REGOXIDINE to remain on the scalp for about 4 hours before washing.
Can I go swimming or out in the rain?
Yes. Avoid washing off the REGOXIDINE. If possible, apply REGOXIDINE to a dry scalp after swimming, or wait about 4 hours after application before going swimming. Do not let your scalp get wet from the rain after applying REGOXIDINE.
Can WOMEN’S REGOXIDINE produce unwanted hair?
Although unwanted hair growth has been reported on the face and on other parts of the body, such reports have been infrequent. The unwanted hair growth may be caused by the transfer of REGOXIDINE to areas other than the scalp, or by absorption into the circulatory system of low levels of the active ingredient, or by a medical condition not related to the use of REGOXIDINE.
If you experience unwanted hair, discontinue using REGOXIDINE and see your doctor for recommendations about appropriate treatment. After stopping use of REGOXIDINE, the unwanted hair, if caused by the use of REGOXIDINE, should go away over time.
You can take steps to decrease the chances for unwanted hair growth:
1. limit the application of REGOXIDINE only to the scalp,
2. if you use your hands to apply REGOXIDINE, wash your hands thoroughly afterwards, and
3. allow sufficient drying time (usually 2 to 4 hours before going to bed) after your nighttime application of REGOXIDINE.
Can I use WOMEN’S REGOXIDINE for baldness or hair loss in babies and children?
No. REGOXIDINE must not be used to treat baldness or hair loss in babies or children.
Are there any special warnings about the use of WOMEN’S REGOXIDINE?

Directions for Use
1. Remove the cap. To remove, push down and turn in direction of the arrows on the cap.
2. Part your hair in the area of hair thinning/loss.
Follow the instructions below for using the dropper applicator and apply one mL 2 times a day directly onto the scalp in the hair loss area. Do not use more. Spread the liquid evenly over the hair loss area. If you use your fingers, wash hands with soap and water immediately. Each bottle should last about one month, if used as directed. Use a mild shampoo if you wash your scalp before applying REGOXIDINE.
Using the Dropper Applicator
- Squeeze the rubber bulb and insert the dropper into the bottle. Release the bulb, allowing the dropper to fill to the 1 mL line. If the level of the solution is above the 1 mL line, squeeze the extra amount back into the bottle.
- Next, place the tip of the dropper near the part of the scalp you want to treat and gently squeeze the bulb to gradually release the solution. To prevent the solution from running off the scalp, apply a small amount at a time.
- After each use attach the dropper to the bottle to make it child-resistant by turning it clockwise until tightly closed.
