Minoxidil is a safe drug when sexual dysfunction is considered. Follihair and Keraglo both are vitamin supplements. Both contains selenium, biotin, zinc and also necessary doses of vitamins and some amino acids. Both are good drugs and it can't be predicted which drug is better.
Finapecia is finasteride, it is a drug that is mainly used in Prostatic Hyperplasia. Recently its use has increased in male pattern baldness. It has a serious side effect of causing erectile dysfunction. To some extent the erectile dysfunction is not reversible. So if you are having erectile dysfunction with this drug then I will advise you to contact your dermatologist for necessary dose adjustments.
