Indications and Usage
Minoxidil is used to stimulate hair growth and treat baldness. It is mostly effective for people who are below the age of 40. Tough the drug does not cure baldness completely; it can certainly reduce the pace of receding hairlines. Androgenic alopecia or male pattern baldness happens because of androgen imbalance in the body. This causes thinning of hair on the top of the head. Minoxidil works by promoting hair growth when applied consistently and in the prescribed doses.
Dosage and Administration
The dose will be recommended by the doctor after examining you thoroughly. Generally 20 drops or 1 ml of Minoxidil lotion needs to be applied on the bald area. It is normally applied twice a day or as instructed by your doctor.
-Method of Administration:
The desired quantity of the medicine needs to be applied as per the instruction of the doctor. The solution needs to be applied in the affected scalp region by parting the hair into two parts and then applying it evenly. Your hands need to be washed before and after the use of the lotion and not more than 2 ml of the lotion is to be applied per day. Apply the lotion carefully so that it does not get in the nose, eyes or the mouth.
Applying the medicine at the same time each day reduces the chance of the medicine getting missed. In case you missed the dose, you can skip the dose and apply the next dose at the correct time. To catch up the missed dose, it is advisable not to double up the dose.
Minoxidil being a topical solution, the chances of overdose is quite less. However, in case you have applied excess lotion and experience any kind of discomfort consult your doctor immediately.
