Minoxidil+Aminexil is prescribed to treat alopecia (hair loss). Alopecia is the thinning or loss of hair on the scalp or any part of the body. Androgenetic alopecia is the permanent hair loss from the scalp that causes baldness commonly noticed in men. The medicine is used to promote hair growth in androgenetic alopecia (male pattern hair loss). It stimulates the hair growth and slows down the process of balding. Minoxidil is a vasodilator that helps in providing oxygen, blood, and nutrients to the hair follicles and prevents hair cell death, and promotes new hair growth. Aminexil is a potassium channel opener that suppresses an enzyme responsible for the build-up of collagen around the hair follicles, resulting in hair loss.
Take the solution as per the prescribed dosage and duration by the doctor. Minoxidil+Aminexil solution shall be applied directly to the scalp area in the desired amount and in the way specified on the label. Some users may experience side effects such as application site irritation, itching, and headache. If your side effects persist or get severe, you shall immediately consult your doctor. Inform your doctor if you are allergic to Minoxidil or Aminexil.
The medicine is composed of two active ingredients Minoxidil and Aminexil. Minoxidil is a vasodilator, and it widens the blood vessels to provide better blood flow to the hair follicles. This prevents hair loss and stimulates re-growth resulting in longer, thicker, and increased numbers of hair. Aminexil suppresses an enzyme that causes a buildup of a protein (collagen) around the hair follicles leading to hair loss. It is primarily used in the treatment of Androgenetic alopecia (hair loss).
