Switched from topical to oral minoxidil
I have been on topical minoxidil for about 6 months, switched to Oral about a month ago and I am shedding right now. I am honestly surprised as I thought that the shed that occurred when I started topical would mean that I won’t shed now.
The shedding is a sign that the oral is working much better than the topical. About 40% of men respond to topical minoxidil but better than 90% respond to the oral so what you are seeing is a vigorous response to the oral minoxidil.
