What is Minoxidil?

minoxidilWikipedia tells us that minoxidil or tricoxidil or aloxidil is a chemical compound with vasodilatory functions. The chemical formula of minoxidil is C9H15N5O; the image shows the chemical configuration of the molecules. Minoxidil was initially used for oral use to combat hypertension, but soon noticed a strange side effect called hirsutism: it became evident in patients treated with a chemical compound that enhanced growth of hair all over the body. They immediately thought of using minoxidil no longer oral use but topical that is in the form of lotion along with other products directly on your scalp. Several studies have shown that a systematic use of minoxidil reduces or stops hair loss and in some cases is also known a small regrowth. The benefits are temporary because if you stop the "minoxidil cure" the hair will return to fall.


Therefore associated with finasteride, minoxidil is an excellent product to combat hair loss and to fight baldness, especially for men. Minoxidil and finasteride are the only two drugs currently approved by the FDA (Food and Drug Administration) for the treatment of androgenetic alopecia.
