Minoxidil - Overview
Minoxidil is a medication sometimes prescribed to people for the treatment of alopecia (hair loss) and infrequently for people who need medication treatment for hypertension. People who might need a minoxidil prescription can use Push Health to connect with a local medical provider who can prescribe minoxidil medication, including prescription minoxidil foam, minoxidil 5% and minoxidil shampoo, when appropriate to do so.
What Is Minoxidil?
Minoxidil prescription medication belongs to a class of drugs known as antihypertensive vasodilators. Today, minoxidil medication is more frequently prescribed to help people with hair disorders - similar to finasteride (Propecia, Proscar). Minoxidil is sometimes marketed under brand names such as Rogaine, Avacor, Lontin and Minitop. The minoxidil dosage and regimen used depends on the judgement of the prescribing medical provider and the health needs of the patient. Minoxidil medication is generally affordable. For example, minoxidil 2.5 mg tablets cost under 20 cents per tablet at most pharmacies in the United States. Minoxidil coupons can sometimes be found online or through other sources. Additionally, minoxidil prescription medication may also be covered under some insurance plans
Can I Buy Minoxidil Online?
Minoxidil OTC is available at some pharmacies. However, stronger versions of minoxidil medication do require a prescription to be dispensed by a pharmacy in the United States. For these versions of minoxidil foam or shampoo, one cannot just buy minoxidil online. Instead the first step to getting prescription minoxidil is consulting a licensed medical provider. People who might need a minoxidil prescription can use Push Health to connect with a medical provider who can prescribe minoxidil 5% medication, including minoxidil foam and minoxidil shampoo, when appropriate to do so.
Minoxidil - Side Effects
Minoxidil prescription medication can cause side effects when used. Side effects that can occur from minoxidil foam use include burning, redness, itching, irritation and unwanted hair growth. Infrequently, minoxidil can paradoxically worsen hair loss. Facial swelling, palpitations and some heart conditions have been infrequently reported with minoxidil use. Prior to using minoxidil medication, it is important to discuss side effects with a medical provider. Minoxidil and alcohol should not be used together. People with an allergy to minoxidil or related medications should not use minoxidil shampoo or foam.
