Brief Answer:
Minoxidil is safe

Detailed Answer:

Thanks for your query.

Yes, you can use Minxodil 5% solution, though initially it presents with some side effects like dandruff, later they disappear and present with healthy hair.

You can also take Tab FINAX 1mg per day for a month to prevent hair fall.
