Did you get any side affects from taking oral castor oil?
He will answer I am sure but the main side effect for me was gastric distress even from low amounts. Now I just put some on the tip of my finger a few times a week but I have been using it topically a lot. No sides there except it is a chore to get out of one's hair. You really need to be able to dunk your head a lot to get it out unless you shampoo it out but to me, that sort of takes away a lot of the benefits in terms of not stripping hair bare in a female context.

did you get huge hypertrichosis from oral min 5 mg?
Me the only side which bother me is unwanted body hair. I have been on 1.25 mg for 35 days and i get longer belly hair/ even on shouler/ lower back and that sucks a lot... i hope they willl not grow until they reach 10 cm..

Never had any issues with unwanted body hair, had no hair on chest or back before i started, still don't. I honestly for some strange reason think im not that a great responder to oral minoxidil, especially when compared to that guy who recently made the thread who has hair everywhere, no idea why im not responding well though, i take 10mg loniten same as him, have done for ages now. My temples aren't perfect but of no real concern, it is my crown that is bad. I honestly think i have some form of scarring alopecia on a specific area of my crown.

Guys what do you use for water retention??
Dandelion root dont do anything for me, and i dont want to use spironolactone.
I was thinking in taurine. Any ideas?

If dandelion root didn't work you are going to need to use a prescribed medication, how bad is your water retention? what dosage of oral min are you on?

usually people
who suffer from a bloated face just take half of the oral
minoxidil they used to take and bloating is gone...

Im on 11mg oral minoxidil. Its not súper bad, but my face is a little Bloated. The thing is that i cant get dandelion root supps, only dandelion leafs. The diuretic effect is in the roots? Maybe i can get the whole plant and make a tea.
Whats hawthorn? How do you take it?

Cranberry extract. Can be bought for relatively cheap in powder form, or in capsules. Supposedly should also have positive benefits for kidneys.

I was on 5mg for a year with okey results, but i want to regrow some hair in the hairline so i upped the dose. Its been 3 months so to early to tell, i hope i can get some regrowth at the 6 month mark.

thx! im still on 5mg and only for a month now... just because that is what people seem to tale without any further issues, while regrowing hair...
in case i am not satisfied, i can just up the dose...

quite sure that more body hair happens to people who are somehow hairy anyway, but i dont think that people who arent grow black hair under their feet all of a sudden... if there is anything i dont like its body hair, chest hair being the worst... but for regrowth on the head, i take that risk any day... worst case is shaving it off...
