Oral minoxodil increasing dose


Recommended Posts

  • Regular Member

hi guys,

I've been on oral minox (loniten) for around 2 years now, first 1.25mg then 2.5mg. I think it has definitely slowed progression.

I am just upping my dose to 3.75mg as my derm is happy. Does anyone with experience of oral minoxidil recon I will see a tangible difference with increasing dose? My main area of concern is front hairline.

Its a good question and one that is difficult to really quantify.

Effective treatment of oral minoxidil in males is seen between 2.5mg and 5mg. The generally recommend dosage is 5mg which obviously presents more active ingredient to increase efficacy. 
Im not aware of any studies that increased dosages from 2.5mg to 3.75mg and as we know all individuals have their own level of sensitivity both positively and negative.
