Your Treatment Plan
Roman Hair Solution Rx Spray
Your provider has reviewed your medical information and has prescribed oral minoxidil and/or Your provider has reviewed your medical information and has prescribed Roman Hair Solution Rx for the treatment of androgenic alopecia, also known as male pattern hair loss.
Roman Hair Solution Rx is a topical spray, which is a custom compound of three active ingredients: minoxidil 6%, finasteride 0.3%, and tretinoin 0.025%.
While topical minoxidil in some strengths and formulations is FDA-approved for the treatment of male pattern hair loss, the strength of the minoxidil (6%), the other ingredients in topical form (finasteride and tretinoin), and the combination of all three ingredients together, is considered “off-label.” This means that the FDA has not specifically approved this medication for treating hair loss. However, healthcare professionals have the discretion to prescribe treatment off-label if they believe it’s an appropriate course of treatment for a particular patient.
Oral finasteride is FDA-approved to treat hair loss in men and low-dose oral minoxidil is commonly used for off-label treatment of hair loss. These medications help patients maintain the hair they have or regrow some hair they have lost. Roman Hair Solution Rx also includes the active ingredient tretinoin, a derivative of vitamin A, to help the minoxidil in the formula absorb into the scalp.
Minoxidil and oral finasteride can cause adverse effects, so we encourage you to familiarize yourself with the side effects listed in this document. Most men may take this medication without difficulty, but being familiar with these possible side effects will help you determine if you’re one of the men who experience them.
Roman Hair Solution Rx is a topical spray, which means that it’s applied directly to the scalp versus taken in oral form.
When we think of applying medications topically, we often assume that their effects are confined to the skin's surface. There’s a common misconception, for example, that using a cream is safer than taking a pill. It’s important to remember that topical medications have the potential to also be absorbed into the bloodstream, which is known as systemic absorption. This means that the active ingredients within these topical treatments have the opportunity to travel throughout your body, potentially impacting various organs and systems. The degree of systemic absorption varies depending on several factors, including the medication's formulation, the condition of the skin, and the duration of contact. Even seemingly innocuous skin creams can lead to unexpected systemic effects. Therefore, it’s important to use Roman Hair Solution Rx as directed by your healthcare provider, including thoroughly reading the information packet (which you’re doing right now!).
