Can I Take The Drug Minoxidil?
Hello, I’m taking medication from a doctor, can I take minoxidil?
Thank you for the question.
Need to be clarified, which doctor's medicine exactly are you taking? Do you use the minoxidil as directed by your doctor? What are your complaints about taking a doctor's medication and want to use the minoxidil?
Minoxidil is a vasodilator class of drugs that play a role in blood flow, so it is often used in patients with hypertension who fail to respond to other treatments. The side effects of this drug, which can increase hair growth and prevent hair loss, are often used in people who have problems with excessive hair loss or baldness.
But you need to know, the use of this drug is not recommended to be done carelessly, especially without a prescription and doctor's supervision. Because, some people can experience symptoms of mild to severe allergies, skin irritation, palpitations, chest pain, headaches, weight gain dramatically, to swelling in the hands and feet after using this drug. In addition, judging by your condition that is undergoing treatment from a doctor, the potential for minoxidil will interact negatively with the drug you are taking can also occur, especially if the drug you are taking is a type of corticosteroid, topical retinoids, anti-hypertension, and sympathetic inhibitors. .
So, do not carelessly use minoxidil without first seeing a doctor for your own good huh ..
I hope this helps.
