Body hair growth is side effect of minoxidil
Hello and welcome again,
The discontinuation of minoxidil abruptly causes increased hair loss probably at much faster rate than before.
But when discontinuation of the drug is tapered over a period of time the hair loss is not so abrupt.
You need to consult your dermatologist
to review the drugs which you are currently taking.
Minoxidil no doubt increases the hair growth, however, it has to be used properly.
Minoxidil although on head only has systemic effect and is responsible for growth of body hair.
is a multi-vitamin preparation which is unlikely to affect hair growth.
is finastride preparation, which acts at hormonal
It is unlikely to increase hair growth on the body.
This side effect of minoxidil is irreversible.
However, if you want to improve the growth of hair on head you will have to use it again under supervision.
If you have more queries I will be glad to answer.
