Title: Topical Minoxidil vs. Oral Minoxidil: What is Better?


1
Topical Minoxidil vs. Oral Minoxidil What is
Better?
2
  • Do you know the first minoxidil medication that
    the FDA approved to treat hair loss was in the
    oral form?
  •  
  • The topical minoxidil medication came from the
    oral version, which was a common prescription for
    hypertension.

3
  • The Journal of the American Academy of
    Dermatology recently published a 24-week study
    done on 52 women suffering from androgenetic
    alopecia. They were divided into two groups.
  •  
  • One group of women were prescribed 1 mg of oral
    minoxidil. This is equivalent to 5 per cent of
    topical minoxidil.
  •  
  • The other group of women were prescribed topical
    minoxidil.

4
  • The results showed that women who took oral
    minoxidil showed a higher hair density than the
    topical one.

5
  • So, should you switch to the oral minoxidil
    treatment?
  •  
  • Before you make the switch, read further

6
  • The major concern of taking oral minoxidil is the
    side effects. Not everybody can tolerate the
    dosage. Not much study is done on the oral side
    effects of this medication. Also, the comparison
    study of oral and topical minoxidil is also
    limited so far.
  •  
  • People who took 1 mg, 2.5 mg, or 5 mg minoxidil
    doses showed some or the other side effects, with
    the highest doses producing adverse reactions.
  •  
  • Besides, everybody reacts differently to
    medications.

7
The question is
  •  
  • Is it worth taking such a health risk when the
    topical minoxidil is equally effective in growing
    hair?

8
  • Topical minoxidil is safer than oral minoxidil.
    Doctors have established this fact. The
    medication has also proved to be quite effective
    in topical form for both genders.
  •  
  • There is one more reason to use topical
    minoxidil.

9
  • The topical version of minoxidil is used for
    decades to treat hair loss successfully. On the
    other hand, the oral version of minoxidil is not
    used much. The oral version was used to treat
    hypertension, not hair loss.

10
  • When minoxidils wonderful property of growing
    hair was discovered, hair product manufacturers
    grabbed the opportunity and used minoxidil as one
    of the chief ingredients in their hair loss
    formulations. This was the topical version, which
    became widely accepted and showed no side effect.

11
  • However, people with certain medical conditions
    are advised to not use topical minoxidil either.
    Pregnant and breastfeeding ladies should also not
    use minoxidil treatment for hair loss.

12
  • People with overall good health show a good
    response to topical minoxidil treatment with zero
    side effects. You may experience a bit of
    irritation on the scalp when you apply minoxidil.
    This is only for a few seconds.

13
  • Some people have reported headache after using
    minoxidil topically. Such reports are rare and,
    if this happens to you, stop using minoxidil
    treatment.
  •  
  • In this case, you must not use the oral version
    either. If you cannot tolerate the topical
    version, which is safer than the oral one,
    chances are high that you may get an adverse
    reaction using the oral version.

14
  • Conclusion
  • Topical minoxidil is safer to use than oral
    minoxidil. And if you are looking for a reliable
    name in minoxidil-infused hair regrowth
    treatment, choose Keranique.
