How it works
Minoxidil works in several ways. First, it moves your hairs into a phase of active growth, also referred to as the anagen phase of the hair growth cycle. Second, it may increase blood flow to your scalp, providing your hair follicles with more of the nutrients they need for consistent growth .
USAGE AND SAFETY
Accidental ingestion may produce systemic effects related to the vasodilatory action of Minoxidil. Signs and symptoms of drug overdosage would most likely be cardiovascular effects associated with fluid retention, lowered blood pressure and tachycardia. Fluid retention can be managed with appropriate diuretic therapy. Tachycardia can be controlled by administration of a beta adrenergic blocking agent. Hypotension should be treated by intravenous administration of normal saline. Sympathomimetic drugs, such as norepinephrine and epinephrine should be avoided because of their excessive cardiac stimulating activity.
There are currently no known interactions associated with the use of Minoxidil Topical Solution.

Patients should be observed periodically for any such systemic effects. In the event of systemic side-effect or severe dermatologic reaction discontinue administration of the drug.
