    Has anyone heard of any side effects of using Rogaine?

    My onc said he had found some information online re side effects and that one of those was it's dangerous for cats if their skin comes in contact with it. Can anyone shed light on the safety of Rogaine for persons or animals?

      Papayagirl, you might want to check out Rogaine on the Skin Deep website. Just type it into the search bar. It does have precautions and one of them is endocrine disruptions. As hormones play a big part in most breast cancers you should look into it, good luck.

      I used the stronger men's formula (5% vs 2% monoxidil) and got some serious facial hair which went away after I stopped using (there's a warning about that side effect that comes with the package insert)
