Oral Minoxidil works in the same ways as topical minoxidil, by causing vasodilation or relaxing the blood vessels, which helps deliver blood flow and nutrients to stimulate hair growth. Minoxidil is converted into its active form by the sulfotransferase enzyme found in the scalp and liver - but not all men have this in their scalps. Some argue that Oral Minoxidil can be more effective than the topical version because it is directly absorbed into the bloodstream and therefore activated in all patients regardless of whether the enzyme is present in their scalp.
The Oral Minoxidil dose for hair loss in males is one 2.5mg tablet taken once daily. Treatment needs to be continued for the positive effect on hair to be maintained.

As hair growth is a slow process, it can take several months before results become apparent. Hair typically grows at an average of 1cm per month so we suggest it would suggest it would take approximately 6 months to notice significant progress with optimal results after 12 months.
Oral Minoxidil is a suitable and safe alternative/2nd line treatment to topical Minoxidil in those who can’t take topical Minoxidil due to side effects from Topical Minoxidil such as scalp irritation, headaches, redness and itchy scalp, or who find hair appearance or even compliance difficult with topical treatments but who still want to treat their hair loss with Minoxidil.

- A medicine that has no licence at all.
- A medicine that has a licence in other countries, but not the UK.
- A medicine that is being used for a purpose other than for which it is specifically licensed - this is the case with Oral Minoxidil for hair loss.
Side effects are rare and generally reversible. Possible side effects include excessive hair growth (hypertrichosis) in other parts of the body ,
headaches and fluid retention.
It’s normal for your old hair to fall out within the first 2-4 months this is a good sign! It means that the medication is working and your hair is starting a new growth cycle.
It takes some time for changes to become visible. Some men will shed more fine hairs than normal, but this is only temporary.
Hair loss may have considerably slowed or stopped completely. Some people see signs of regrowth, primarily at the crown of the head.
As the medication continues to work, miniaturised hairs will be replaced by thicker healthier hairs which leads to a gradual improvement in hair density over time .
