Detailed Answer:
Hi XXXXXXX
Thanks for writing in to us.

I have read through your query in detail.
Please find my observations below.

1. MORR F 5 percent contains minoxidil as 5 percent solution and and finastride and this is used to increase hair growth on the scalp. This solution is to be applied to the scalp 1 ml twice daily. You will feel the change in 3 weeks to a month.

2. Minoxidil is a medicine that promotes hair growth at low doses as solution and and also is used in treatment of hypertension when taken as tablets. The side effects are present usually when taken as tablets for treatment of hypertension and includes increased heart rate, fluid retention in body. Rarely it might cause itching, burning or flushing of skin when used in solution form. However if you find any such side effect then stop using it and please consult your doctor.

3. Finasteride is a 5-α reductase enzyme inhibitor which controls the testosterone level and is used in treatment of benign enlargement of prostate when taken orally and for hair growth as solution for local application. Possible side effects of oral intake include gynaecomastia, decreased libido, impotence, reduction in the volume of ejaculate, testicular pain. Hypersensitivity reactions like swelling of lips and face, itching, rashes are seen in few patients who apply the solution. If you have any side effects then please stop using and consult your doctor.

Please feel free to correct any oversight in my interpretation of your problems and discuss them in detail as per your requirements.

Hi XXXXXXX
Thanks for writing back with an update.

1. If you are healthy and eat well then there is no requirement to take any additional medicine. However if you feel that your diet has less vitamins then you can take capsule A TO Z which is vitamin supplement and available at pharmacy. Please take one capsule daily.

2. There is no precaution other than using only 1 ml twice daily. Applying more than that is harmful.

Some patients might develop mild side effects like flaking, burning or itching of scalp skin.

Hope your query is answered.
