Hello!

Welcome on HCM!

Regarding your concern, I would like to explain that there is no restriction in taking any vitamin or supplements in the presence of aortic stenosis. So you may use them uneventful in case they are medically indicated.

In addition, when considering Minoxidil use in the presence of aortic stenosis a point of concern may be a potential for triggering hypotension which is not well tolerated in aortic stenosis patients.

Nevertheless, a careful topical prescription would be considered safe in this regard.

Hope to have been helpful to you!

Kind regards,

Dr. Iliri
