What is Hair Re-Growth Treatment Lotion Trigaine Forte®
Trigaine Forte® Lotion is a potent hair regrowth treatment medicine. This combination medicine is used to treat hair loss. It increases the blood supply to the scalp that promotes hair growth. It also provides nutrition to the scalp. Trigaine Forte® Lotion is a combination of three medicines: Hydrocortisone, Minoxidil and Tretinoin which treat hair loss.
- Hydrocortisone is a steroid that blocks the production of certain chemical messengers (prostaglandins) that make the scalp red, swollen and itchy. This medication is used to treat a variety of skin conditions (e.g., insect bites, poison oak/ivy, eczema, dermatitis, allergies, rash, itching of the outer female genitals, anal itching). Hydrocortisone reduces the swelling, itching, and redness that can occur in these types of conditions. This medication is a mild corticosteroid.
- Minoxidil is a vasodilator, meaning it widens the blood vessels and provides better blood flow to the hair follicles. This prevents hair loss and stimulates re-growth. Minoxidil topical is used to help you regrow hair on your scalp. Minoxidil topical will not cause permanent regrowth of scalp hair. You must continue using the product to keep the regrowth of your hair.
- Tretinoin is a form of vitamin A. It works by promoting the growth of hair follicles and additionally enhances the absorption of Minoxidil from the scalp.
Trigaine Forte® Lotion should only be applied directly to the scalp area in the amount, and in the way, specified on the label or by your doctor. Clean and dry your scalp before using it. It may take several months before you notice any hair growth and the first growth may be soft, colorless and barely visible. Using more than recommended will not speed up hair growth and may cause dangerous side effects.
This medication must be used continuously to maintain hair growth. If your condition does not improve or worsens after using it for 4 to 6 months, tell your doctor. Some common side effects of this medicine include itching, redness, and burning sensation at the application site. If these side effects do not improve with time or worsen, inform your doctor. If you get it in your eyes, mouth or broken skin, rinse thoroughly with plenty of water. Talk to your doctor if you are bothered by side effects, or they do not go away. It may not be appropriate if your hair loss is due to medications (such as chemotherapy) or any nutritional deficiency. You should also not use this medicine if you have high blood pressure or are using other creams or lotions to treat other scalp conditions
