Hi guys, I've read discussion on symptoms like increased heartbeat and nausea etc. but not on the subject of weight gain. Before I go into detail I'll first explain where I am with minox: I've been using Kirkland Minoxidil now since May but not consistently; ie. some weeks I'll use it every day, others I'll use it every other, or ever 3 days or sometimes occasionally I miss a whole week either due to the fact I forgot or I end up traveling and it not being practical. I use it once a day on application. In the last 3 weeks, I have started to notice that I have suddenly gone from being 73kg to 75.6kg on an empty stomach, and in the last week and a half I've been getting very regular migraines. I have not eaten more than usual, and I still only eat less than 1500 calories per day even on a bad day so it can't be my diet surely. I'm unhappy with my weight gain :thumbdown2: Has any one else on this forum experienced this, and for those who are a bit clever, what effect of minoxidil causes the weight gain?
