    I know there were a few people on this forum using Loniten (oral minoxidil.) Just wondering if they'd care to share their results so far.

    I'm 4.5 weeks into Spironolactone and oral minoxidil. Nothing to report really except going through dread shed.

    Emylou55,

    Is the oral minoxidil your first time on minoxidil?

    Wishing your dred shed will quickly come to an end...

    Hi, i've started to take Oral Minoxidil 1mg and have been taking 100mg Spironolactone for 1 month. Can you please tell me when you started to experience the 'dreaded shed' and how long it went for? I've only been taking Minoxidil for just over 2 weeks. I'd like to know what to expect and other peoples experiences. Thanks

    I would also really be interested in any updates from oral minoxidil users. It would be great if Emylou55 would drop in to bring us up to date on her experience.

    I started taking 2.5mg oral minoxidil for about two weeks, for the past few days I am taking 5 mg. I have used topical minoxidil for many years and it has lost its effectiveness for me. I am concerned that oral may also not be effective and only cause me to shed.

    I am currently shedding but I was before starting the oral minoxidil. It is hard for me to gauge if there has been any increase. I don't have any side-effects.

    Hi Jane,

    My name is Tricia. I'm highly considering Oral Minoxidil after breast cancer. Can you give us an update?

    Any oral minoxidil users have an update? My derm is prescribing this for me to try. Any positive results or undesirable side effects?

    Of course Tricia. If I have any results....good or bad, I’ll share. Haven’t started taking it yet.
    Sorry you’re dealing with the chemo and it’s effects

    Thank you Mia! I tried sending you a private message but I didn't see that option on you profile page. Will you direct message me too?
