About Minoxidil

Topical minoxidil is an over-the-counter (OTC) medication for treating male and female pattern hair loss (also known as AGA or common baldness). Minoxidil is a prodrug that is converted into its active form, minoxidil sulfate, by the sulfotransferase enzyme expressed in the outer root sheath of hair follicles.

While some studies showed application of the 5% minoxidil solution led to better results than the 2% minoxidil solution, irritation of the skin was also found to be more common in patients treated with the 5% minoxidil solution, presumably due to its higher propylene glycol content.

The response of patients to minoxidil may vary widely, and some patients have better results than others. Talk to your doctor or pharmacist to see whether minoxidil is right for you.

Always read the label and follow the directions for use.5,6

It has been suggested that topical minoxidil may promote hair growth by improving blood flow to hair follicles, activating biological pathways linked to hair growth cycle, and reducing inflammation linked to hair loss. Therefore, topical minoxidil may provide benefits to patients with AGA or common baldness.1
