For High Blood Pressure "Fine hair growth. Have taken minoxidil for 39 years and it controlled my hbp . Ten years ago my Dr cut it in half and added ateniol. One year ago ateniol was removed and lacenopril was added. I have been hit with low BP to black out limit. They refuse my needs now . I feel death is near . My Dr France wong will not help but insist go to ER."

"Works wonders. I had the gastric sleeve and wanted to prevent hair loss. I have the most beautiful head of hair I have ever had. So I never experienced hair loss after my surgery. I gained beautiful hair. I have NEVER had baby hairs until I started using. I’m on 2.5 for every other day. My eyelashes look fake. Brows wonderfully thick. Your body hair will definitely grow but I got a home laser treatment. I went off for almost a couple of months and ALL the new growth started falling off. I’m back on it now. So that’s the only downside. I’m on Wellbutrin, so I have no weight gain, if anything I eat way less. I absolutely recommend. It’s also super cheap without insurance. Major plus. Thank God for this"

"I have only been on topical and oral minoxidil for about 30-60 days. So far, I've had less shedding in the shower and my hair is starting to look normal again. I will say that I had a glass (1) of wine on an empty stomach and wound up having a drop in my BP so much so that I fainted after walking to the bathroom. Scared me enough. Bad combination but I've never done that prior, and it was not pleasant, be careful with alcohol"

For High Blood Pressure "I've been using this drug for over 6 years in combination with Clonodine. This drug works great but the user needs to be very careful because it will increase your heart rate and needs to be used in combination with another drug. I currently have a normal blood pressure after many years of high blood pressure."
