In most cases, Minoxidil is safe for long term use. 

Here’s what you need to know:

Side effects with Minoxidil are limited and will subside when you stop taking the medication. Some patients may experience mild scalp irritation. If you experience any side effects, you should stop taking the medication. A complete list of side effects can be found in the Patient Information Leaflet (PIL) enclosed with your medication, which you should always read before taking it for the first time.
