Hi there Am way of the side effects of minoxidil (headaches, dark eye rings, bloating). I have experienced a couple of them in the past when using the foam as well as Dr Klein's stuff (going back a while now). Would a product like Aquagaine - that's more water based be any better? Or, for that matter - is there any formulation that is able to get around this? The only success stories I see are ones that use minoxidil and the sad truth is that there's nothing remotely close out there (imho).
