Minoxidil is FDA approved for the treatment of androgenetic alopecia (female pattern hair loss) in women.

Women considering starting minoxidil may wish to check with their physician to confirm the reason for hair loss and to ensure there are no medical or health contraindications.

Minoxidil should not be used during pregnancy.
