Safety of oral finasteride and minoxidil

 I understand thank you once again. I was simply asking if oral min was generally considered safer in the long term then fin?

The answer for the drug finasteride and oral minoxidil is that if you don’t develop complications from the drugs, then they are safe for you. For example, oral minoxidil has a very rare cardiac side effect that is dangerous and must be picked up early (fainting, heart palpitations, allergy).

these are known complication of this drug so should you eliminate taking it because of this potential, even if it is rare? If you get sexual or other side effects from finasteride, then speak with your doctor and see if you should still take it. A few people believe that if you get sexual side effects and you stay on the drug, these side effects will continue (Post Finasteride Syndrome)
