Minoxidine   2 – 5   (SOLUTION)

Treatment of Alopecia

COMPOSITION:
Each 100ml Solution contains 2 or 5g minoxidil.

INDICATIONS:
Minoxidine is a topical solution, which is effective in the treatment of alopecia (hair loss) and alopecia areata. Minoxidine promotes hair growth by direct dilator effect on the peripheral vasa, and is also promoting the epithelium of hair bursa.
Therapy experience gives acceptable percentage of hair re-growth in the treatment of alopecia, and a high percentage of unthick hair re-growth. Good results are achieved in about 50% of patients, when Minoxidine treats the alopecia areata. The response was better when the patients use Minoxidine directly after hair loss. It may be required long period before hair re-growth can be observed (twice daily for over 4 months). If patient responds to treatment, he will need to continue using Minoxidine to maintain hair growth.
