What is Formula 82M?

Formula 82M is a prescription medication used for hair regrowth that is an alternative to the over-the-counter (OTC) generic minoxidil or Rogaine brand. The drug contains (5%) Minoxidil and Tretinoin, along with a topical steroid. Minoxidil is an active metabolite which has been shown in studies to stimulate hair growth. It has been the number one topical therapy for Androgenetic Alopecia (AGA) since receiving FDA clearance in 1988.

What’s the Problem?

The company that makes Formula 82M, South Richmond Hill, New York-based MasterPharm, LLC, has issued a recall for the hair loss treatment after an FDA inspection found at least 5 safety violations at its manufacturing facility. These violations included:

  • The ISO classified aseptic processing areas have difficult to clean, particle-generating and visibly dirty equipment and surfaces.
  • Non-microbial contamination was observed in the production area.
  • Hazardous drugs were produced without providing adequate containment, segregation, and/or cleaning of work surfaces, utensils, and/or personnel to prevent cross-contamination.
  • The facility design allowed the influx of poor quality air into a higher classified area.
