Patient : Hi,
does topical application on the scalp of 5% minox cause heart lesions and problems after long-term use? The problem is once you start applying Minxo for hair growth, you cant stop and if you cant stop, then there needs to be a better understanding of longterm use side effects, mainly heart lesions, seen on animals when taken orally (and even topically). So what are the long term risks of applying minoxidil 5% topically (for 5 to 10 years and even longer).
