In Sweden a dialysis pacient uses this drug for blood pressue regulation, minoxidil cannot be bought over the counter only by prescription license.
Have you ever used minoxidil, what for, what kind of side affects did you experience and how much were you taking?
You need a prescription for Monoxidil because it is a medication used to treat serious hypertension, however, it can be bought over the counter as the hair regrowth product Rogaine which is used on the scalp.
Have heard of Rogaine for hair regrowth, I am using Minoxidil (Loniten) for blood pressure (hypertension).
Have experienced dramatic hair growth over the whole body, read the FDA report on this drug and the side affects can be very serious.
Wondering if anyone else has had other side affects other than hair growth and lowered blood pressure.
Thank You for commenting.
