Hi thanks for getting in touch. Dutasteride is an alternative that may have some additional benefit for you. Oral minoxidil is really for blood pressure, that's what it was made for first, the hair gain was a side effect. Some people's blood pressure got too low and they can faint or fall over etc. Hence the foam was made for direct application. You could ask your GP to consider dutasteride. You might also want to look into dermal rolling as well as there's growing evidence for that. I hope that helps, all the best.
Yes you can switch straight over absolutely, no wean off period is needed. Best of luck with it I think you have the right approach. If you could leave a positive review I'd be really grateful, all the best again :)
