Hi, I've been using 10mg (5mg twice a day) oral minoxidil every day for about 8 months. My hair became much thicker, but no regrowth on my hairline. I switched to 12.5mg oral minoxidil once a day, but since then I've been losing a lot of hair and can pull them out very easily. Since then my scalp became also very itchy. This has been the case for 3 weeks now and my status is getting worse and worse. I also take 0.5mg dutasteride daily for over 2 years now btw. Did you experience shedding while on oral minoxidil? Any tips?
