General Surgeon 's  Response
It is safe to apply Minoxidil externally on the scalp region,however the prescription of Minoxidil tablet is strictly reserved for patients with hypertension, since its a potent anti-hypertensive.It can cause pericardial effusion, occasionally progressing to tamponade, and angina pectoris conditions. Therefore avoid such medication until prescribed by your physician.
