Oral minoxidil experiences?

After 2.5 years of ongoing hair loss, and not many concrete answers even from top derms and endos I’ve been prescribed oral minoxidil and I wondered if anyone else has tried it and had any experiences with its successes or failures... it’s not lisenced yet but a few dermatologists are perscribing it for ongoing Hair shedding or Androgenic aloapcia. Thank you for you’re time 🙂

Hi. I have looked at your previous posts and I wonder if hair loss is your only symptom. Do you have any other?

Low thyroid levels can also be a cause for hair loss. Could you post your most recent thyroid blood test with ranges and any other blood testd for vitamins etc. There might be a cause if levels are low.
