Coverit 2% Solution


Overview

Introduction of Coverit Solution

Coverit 2% Solution belongs to a class of drugs known as vasodilators. It is used to promote hair growth after hereditary hair loss (male pattern baldness). It is not used for sudden, patchy or unexplained hair loss.

Coverit 2% Solution 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, colourless 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.

Coverit 2% Solution is generally safe and suitable for most people but has some potential side effects. The most common are headache, itching or irritation of the scalp and unwanted hair growth in other places (not your scalp). It may also make you feel sick and can change the colour and texture of your hair. If this happens, stop using it. If this medicine gets into the bloodstream it can cause side effects related to low blood pressure such as chest pain, rapid heartbeat, dizziness, swollen hands, and feet. This should not happen if you use it correctly and avoid contact with broken skin. 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 would not go away.

Coverit 2% Solution should not normally be used by people under the age of 18 or over 65. It’s also not appropriate if your hair loss is not normal hereditary hair loss or if you’re totally bald. 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. Talk to you doctor or pharmacist if you have heart disease or circulation problems.

How to use Coverit Solution

Use this medicine in the dose and duration as advised by your doctor. Check the label for directions before use.

How Coverit Solution works

Coverit 2% Solution is a vasodilator, which expands the blood vessels to promote blood flow. This reduces your blood pressure. The topical application of Coverit 2% Solution on your scalp helps in increasing blood flow through the vasodilation process. This increased blood flow provides more nutrition and oxygen to the hair follicle, which prevents hair cell death. It also stimulates hair growth by prolonging the action of a chemical messenger (anagen). This is how it works to lower your blood pressure, and treats your alopecia (hair loss).

Expert Advice

  • Wash your hands before and after application.
  • It should only be applied directly to the scalp area. If Coverit 2% Solution accidentally comes in contact with your eyes, nose or mouth, flush the area thoroughly with cool tap water.
  • Do not shampoo your hair for 4 hours after applying Coverit 2% Solution or use hairdryer as it can reduce the effectiveness of the medicine.
  • During the first 2 weeks of application, your hair fall may increase. This is normal and is a sign that Coverit 2% Solution is working.
  • Take care that Coverit 2% Solution does not trickle down onto your face as it may cause undesirable facial hair growth.
