Frequently asked questions about Minoxidil

What is minoxidil?

Minoxidil - often sold under the brand name Rogaine - is a topical medication used to treat male pattern baldness and promote hair growth. Minoxidil is also effective in treating thinning hair in women. It is an over-the-counter medication that does not require a prescription.

Minoxidil is most effective when taken to slow the progress of pattern baldness. It is not generally used to treat other types of hair loss, like receding hairlines. If you are experiencing unexplained hair loss and do not have a family history of pattern baldness, contact your doctor. This could be a sign of a more serious medical condition beyond the scope of minoxidil.

What is minoxidil used to treat?

Topical minoxidil is used to treat male pattern baldness. It can also be taken by women experiencing thinning hair.

By the age of 50, nearly half of all men report having experienced some degree of pattern baldness - a condition that affects more than 50 million Americans. Researchers believe that the condition emerges as hormone levels fluctuate over the course of a man’s life. As a vasodilator, minoxidil has been shown to promote thicker, healthier hair growth.

When administered orally, minoxidil has been approved by the FDA to treat high blood pressure. Topical minoxidil - offered for only $5 a month through Sesame - only works on hair and is not suitable to treat high blood pressure. Consult your doctor if you think you may be experiencing symptoms of high blood pressure.

How does minoxidil work?

Doctors do not fully understand why minoxidil stimulates hair growth.

Minoxidil belongs to a family of drugs known as vasodilators, which expand blood vessels to improve blood flow throughout the body. That’s why minoxidil is often prescribed in its oral form to treat high blood pressure. When used as a topical cream, it’s believed that minoxidil increases blood flow to hair follicles, nourishing fuller, healthier hair.

It is important to note, though, that minoxidil’s effects on your hair are not permanent - they last only as long as you continue to use the medication. As soon as you stop using minoxidil, your pattern baldness will begin to return.

What are the most common side effects of minoxidil?

While uncommon, you may experience some adverse side effects when using minoxidil. These may include:

Acne Burning Scalp Increased facial hair Hair loss Inflammation Reddened skin Facial swelling

While minoxidil cream is an over-the-counter medication that does not require a prescription, you should still notify your doctor if you experience any side effects related to your minoxidil treatment.

This is not a complete list of side effects associated with minoxidil. For more information on adverse effects you may experience, visit the National Institutes of Health’s DailyMed webpage.

How long does it take for minoxidil to work?

Minoxidil isn’t Advil or Tylenol - you won’t see effects 20 or 30 minutes after you use it. Instead, it may take up to a few months before you start to notice minoxidil’s effect on your pattern baldness.

As a vasodilator, minoxidil takes time to remedy your pattern baldness. Even if you do not immediately notice a fuller scalp, it is recommended that you continue using minoxidil. Its effects last only as long as you continue taking it.
