Question: Why is there an age limit of 65 years for use of minoxidil?
Answer: Hi, Robert. It is the manufacturers of Regaine that can give the real answer as to why they put an age limit on their minoxidil product. However, we can guess that perhaps the manufacturers of Regaine put this as a safety net since it is an over-the-counter medication.
A lot of possible users over the age of 65 may have some form of disease or heart problems that may make them unsuitable for minoxidil, and unless they see a hair loss specialist or doctor to discuss their suitability for the medication, mitigating health issues may not be picked up on. This age limit simply means that you need a doctor‘s prescription before you can use Regaine.
The Belgravia Centre offers minoxidil to people between the ages of 16 and 70 years, subject to an examination or online consultation.
