I've been following follica protocol for around 6 months and taking low dose oral minoxidil (like 4mg every other day) and there has been some improvement in my density. I'm still diffused but there is unmistakeable improvement.

I don't want to get too reliant on minoxidil so take low dose sporadically, and maybe it's the needling doing the work but I think really is Minoxidil doing most of the work.

Unless you microneedle taking topical with oral is a wash. Oral will have a much stronger effect.
Personally i agree, sulfotransferase enzyme is much present in the liver, but during a visit this famous dermatologist insisted for using them both

It is becoming more clear that the best results come from intense daily (or almost daily dermarrolling. By the way my 5 months results, same lenght and lightning:

Good results. A lot of comments saying how he has aged a ton and has big dark circles. Honestly, it just looks like completely different lighting to me.
also the alcohol in the topical makes ur skin look like sh*t, i got 0 sides on oral minoxidil

He looked better before, even with less hair.

It appears so. But I think it could be due to the lighting difference and he may be raising his eyes slightly in the after. Or maybe like Xander said, due to dryness from the alcohol in minoxidil.

If minoxidil does indeed cause increased aging, I may stop.

If it's due to the alcohol content, than I bet moisturizing would help a lot. That would be a relief, since the "aging" would be temporarily due to the dryness, not permanent "aging". Good to hear you got no sides from oral minoxidil. That definitely does make it seem like it may be due to the alcohol content.

It definitely does. It took months after I quit minoxidil for my eyes to back to normal. Now that I'm on it again they are getting dark again.

Yes my friend this forum is full of nutcases take other ppls reports with a grain of salt. Minoxidil by itself is a safe and tolerable drug in normal doses
