    I drank the topical for a little while, 0.25ml, works fine, but the pills are cheap so i ended up just stocking up on them instead.

    Yesterday I started the same experience. 1 drop in the morning and 1 drop at night of 5 % minoxidil.

    I actually counted that 1 ml contains 24 drops. Meaning that each drop has 2,1 mg of minoxidil, since 1 ml contains 50 mg (5 %).


    Here is an interesting old study comparing topical vs oral minoxidil on alopecia areata.

    I have been debating taking oral minoxidil, too. Whether it’s sourcing pills or drinking the liquid. I cannot use it topically because of terrible irritation... I’ve tried twice, and my skin peels like crazy after one or two applications. I’m hoping I don’t have any reaction if I take it orally.

    Anyway, to those who have taken oral minoxidil, how did it affect the hair on the rest of your body? I don’t want to become excessively hairy elsewhere. I have marginal body hair, and would like to keep it that way! Wouldn’t mind a bit of increase in my beard, though :).

    I think as long as you are in some anti androgen therapy like duta or finas the minoxidil oral will not impact your body hair that much, thats only my thoughts

    Well, One month from my first dose of drinking the topical, all I can say is that the stuff works, i have a lot of new hairs growing in my temples, my eyelashes growing longer than ever and my eyebrows are growing new hairs, i think those two are going to get thicker over time, hair its a lot thicker i can see the difference cuz i am with a buzz cut, and new hairs and thickening of hair its obvious by this time, side effects: in the first two weeks i felt a little bit of chest pain it went away and its fine right now, i up the dose back to 5 mg (2 drops of minoxidil 5% topical), progress looks promising and I am just in my first month in this regimen, i am in dutas and ketoconazole (mon,wed,fri), Cant wait to see when im going to be about my hair in the month 3 and 6 mark, good luck everyone, ill be updating with photos when i get some cosmetic improvement and those hairs get thicken.

    How was the initial shedding? I'm using it for three weeks and all I saw is lots of shedding and some tiny white vellus hairs. It's the worse shed that I've ever seen so far. I thought since I was using topical I don't shed so much but it seems I'm wrong. How long does it take your sheddings and how was it?
