Hey I have some questions regarding consuming topical minoxidil- 1. What’s the effective dosage? I heard @AnxiousAndy takes .25 ML orally once Per day. Can anyone else attest to this? 2. Does it really work? Very few people have done this and iirc Andy’s also on about a million other things so it’s unclear whether that’s what’s helping him or something else. 3. Which Brand? I’ve heard rogaine or kirkland as they should have ingredients safe to consume? 4. When do you see results & will there be shedding? Can it thicken my hairline & diffuse thinning? If so how long does it generally take? 5. Any side effects? 6. Is it more effective than applying topically? 7. Do you drink 2% or 5% minoxidil? It’s a lot of questions & thanks in advance if any of u can answer them. The reason why Im opting in for taking it orally is because Im a diffuse thinner and applying it topically 1-2 daily would be a pain. + my scalps already very dry and Im afraid it would cause more flakiness or make my hair oily. I’ve heard of loniten (tablets), but it’s expensive and I’d have to order it overseas with bitcoin which is an inconvenience. No Doctor would prescribe me oral minoxidil as I’m under 18 still. I’m already on 1 mg finasteride daily + nizoral 2%, dermarolling biweekly & LLLT for 6 months now with no results & im way below baseline so I thought I’d just take the full dive and get on minoxidil too which seems to be my last hope.
