The Risks of Minoxidil

Minoxidil is a powerful pharmacological substance that Naturalocks™ does NOT use! But many people do use Minoxidil, which is the active ingredient in both Rogaine® and Theroxidil®.

This information those consumers should know! This information is from the United States National Institute of Health and the US FDA.


Minoxidil tablets contain the powerful antihypertensive agent, minoxidil, which may produce serious adverse effects. It can cause pericardial effusion, occasionally progressing to tamponade, and angina pectoris may be exacerbated. Minoxidil should be reserved for hypertensive patients who do not respond adequately to maximum therapeutic doses of a diuretic and two other antihypertensive agents.

In experimental animals, minoxidil caused several kinds of myocardial lesions as well as other adverse cardiac effects (see Cardiac Lesions in Animals).

Minoxidil must be administered under close supervision, usually concomitantly with therapeutic doses of a beta-adrenergic blocking agent to prevent tachycardia and increased myocardial workload. It must also usually be given with a diuretic, frequently one acting in the ascending limb of the loop of Henle, to prevent serious fluid accumulation. Patients with malignant hypertension and those already receiving guanethidine (see WARNINGS) should be hospitalized when minoxidil is first administered so that they can be monitored to avoid too rapid, or large orthostatic, decreases in blood pressure.


Apply minoxidil to dry hair and scalp only. Do not apply it to other body areas, and keep it away from your eyes and sensitive skin. If it accidentally comes in contact with these areas, wash them with lots of cool water; call your doctor if they become irritated.

Do not apply minoxidil to a sunburned or irritated scalp.


What special precautions should I follow?

Before using minoxidil,

  • tell your doctor and pharmacist if you are allergic to minoxidil or any other drugs.
  • tell your doctor and pharmacist what prescription and nonprescription medications you are taking, especially guanethidine (Ismelin), other medications for high blood pressure, and vitamins.
  • tell your doctor if you have or have ever had heart, kidney, liver, or scalp disease.
  • tell your doctor if you are pregnant, plan to become pregnant, or are breast-feeding. If you become pregnant while using minoxidil, call your doctor.
  • plan to avoid unnecessary or prolonged exposure to sunlight and to wear protective clothing, sunglasses, and sunscreen. Minoxidil may make your skin sensitive to sunlight.


What should I do if I forget a dose?

Skip the missed dose and continue your regular dosing schedule. Do not apply a double dose to make up for a missed one.

What side effects can this medication cause?

Minoxidil may cause side effects. Tell your doctor if any of these symptoms are severe or do not go away:

scalp itching, dryness, scaling, flaking, irritation, or burning


If you experience any of the following symptoms, call your doctor immediately:

  • weight gain
  • swelling of the face, ankles, hands, or stomach
  • difficulty breathing (especially when lying down)
  • rapid heartbeat
  • chest pain
  • lightheadedness

If you experience a serious side effect, you or your doctor may send a report to the Food and Drug Administration’s (FDA) MedWatch Adverse Event Reporting program online [at] or by phone [1-800-332-1088].
