    I asked this question before and want to push it up again. Sorry if I sound like a broken record J
    Minoxidil users – anybody started getting puffy eyes fm it….? I started developing it after a year of using it (late April) Had no other side effects.

    I've been using men's 5% Rogaine foam once daily (at night) since April 2014 with no adverse effects--and with no regrowth or slow down of shedding either. :(

    You might be allergic?

    I am not allergic on anything else like heyfever etc, the bags started suddenly appearing at the very end of April and I hardly use Rogaine any longer - just a few drops now and then, they seem to be stuck. It is not fat, it is water retention.

    Minoxidil can cause water retention is some people. Others are not affected, it is just a crap shoot. Other than quitting minoxidil you can drink extra water, use under eye cream containing caffeine, use a natural diuretic like Dandelion Root.

    It is a trade of it seems. My hair loss was greatly helped by putting on a little weight, my doctor told me to gain up 5 pound. I am still a normal weight, size 2 or 4 but now closer to 4 and it is bugging me a little but my hair is doing better so I will deal with it.

    Hi, I've been using Rogaine 5% liquid for about two years with no ill effects. No puffy eyes.
