Thanks for posting your query.

The recommended strength of Mintop for hair loss is 2% or 5%. The dosage is 1ml of a 2% or 5% solution applied to the scalp twice a day. Results appear only on continuous usage for 4 months.

Discontinuation of the medication causes hair loss to resume.

Use in higher concentration may cause systemic effects like tachycardia, hypotension, headache etc.

It is important to remember that Minoxidil, the drug in Mintop is effective in promoting hair growth or preventing hair loss in only male pattern baldness.

There could be other reasons for hair loss like infection, lack of nutrition etc that need to be looked into.
