Minoxidil shedding – WRassman,M.D. BaldingBlog
On topical min for 1.5 years + topical fin for 6 months with great results. Started oral min and seeing a ton of shedding. Is this normal? Topical min was great when I started it 1.5 years ago but all it did was slow the hair loss down. So 6 months ago I started topical fin with great results, and saw almost all loss stop within a few weeks. I still have a few thin patches so almost a month ago I decided to add oral min (1.25mg) to the mix after reading about how effective it can be. Almost immediately after starting oral min I began shedding again pretty heavily, and its continued on now about 1 month after starting.
Shedding indicates that minoxidil is working. The shedding will pass in a month or two. Then hopefully, you will see some new growth to solve your problem.
