Oral Minoxidil; Safe Dose

Reduce the Dose of Minoxidil Every Few Weeks

The dose of minoxidil tablet can be reduced every few weeks or months.
Daily 5mg minoxidil can be changed to the dose 5mg/2.5mg every other day. After 2-3 months, dose of oral minoxidil can be reduced further to 2.5mg per day.

In this way, the dose reduction of oral minoxidil can be controlled gradually every 2-3 months. Dose of oral minoxidil will be reduced to 1.25/2.5mg alternative daily dose or to 1.25mg daily eventually.

If the number of hair shedding increases in the meantime, the dose of minoxidil tablet can be increased to the previous dose again for several months.
After a while, dose reduction can be tried again.
