Minoxidil is used with other medications to treat high blood pressure (hypertension). Lowering high blood pressure helps prevent strokes, heart attacks, and kidney problems. Minoxidil works by relaxing blood vessels so blood can flow more easily.Minoxidil solution and foam are used to help hair growth in the treatment of male pattern baldness. It is not used for baldness at the front of the scalp or receding hairline in men. The 2 percent minoxidil solution is also used to help hair growth in women with thinning hair. Minoxidil belongs to a class of drugs known as vasodilators. It is not known how minoxidil causes hair growth. This medication is not used for sudden/patchy hair loss, unexplained hair loss (e.g., no family history of hair loss), or hair loss after giving birth. Do not use this product if you are 18 years old or younger.

I have VERY difficult to treat hypertension. I have been taking Minoxidil in combination with Clonidine now for 5 years. This combo reduced by BP from 200/100 to 120/60, which is rather remarkable. I do have to take a whole suite of other drugs because of the Minoxidil side effects: Lasix (fluid retention), Metropolol (tachardia), and Enalapril and Potassium. You must be very conscientous of salt intake on Minoxidil and limit yourself to about 2 grams per day. All that extra effort aside to control the side effects, it is a very effective drug for my essential hypertension.

Did little to nothing for me, in fact I noticed more hair on the bathroom floor than before I started using it. May work for some but not for me.

On day three of use, my scalp started burning! It was the Labor Day Weekend. I now have scalbs on my scalp. The burning is not as bad, but itching is now the problem. I am waiting for my dermatologist's office to open! I tried to call the 1-800 number but they were having "technical difficulties". I suggest you use a small patch test to see if this product is safe for you. GOOD LUCK!
