    Is there such a thing taken orally like FIN, if there isnt any, is it possible that Minox can be taken in pill form?

    Yes, but it is used as a vasodilator for heart conditions (high blood pressure) and probably will not have an effect on hair.

    I will have an effect. Otherwise it wouldn't perhaps be a MPB treatment today . :wink:

    You don't want to take it. It's much more potent and has serious effects on your heart.

    systemic minoxidil is pretty heavy stuff, you have to be in a bad way (blood pressure) before you go eating those potatoes.

    Yeah, but it's hard to keep it balanced on your head without the darn thing falling off.
