Reviews for Minoxidil to treat 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."

"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."
