Hi Prabhu,

I understand your health concern.

You can both the medications i.e Minoxidil 2% and folliderm tablets together. There is no interaction between the two. Both are essential drugs in the treatment of androgenetic alopecia.

You can take a single tablet of Folliderm every day after food.

Wish you a speedy recovery.

All the best.

Hi Prabhu,
Thanks for writing in.
You can take both folliderm tablet and apply minoxidil solution safely. There is no problem if you take these 2 together.
The dose of Folliderm is two tablets daily. I think eating a high protein diet, getting enough sleep , oil massage and exercise would also help.
