Minoxidil 15 Review
Does Minoxdil 15 Percent Work?
I’m fairly familiar with how minoxidil works after reading about it for the past few years. When I started to lose my hair, I started to do a whole lot of research and learned a lot about all the minoxidil based products I could learn about. So naturally, I learned about minoxidil 15% as well.
I have not personally used minoxidil 15% in any of its forms, but there’s a pretty good reason for that. After looking into its effectiveness, I learned that minoxidil 15% is actually not FDA approved. The FDA originally approved minoxidil 2% for use on men, and then women. They then approved minoxidil 5% for use on men only. However, they never approved any higher levels of minoxidil. There have never been clinical studies to detect its effectiveness or safety, and that’s somewhat of a concern for me.
As of just recently, Xandrox was actually banned by the FDA because of their claims that their 15% minoxidil solution is FDA approved. Although minoxidil is FDA approved in 2% and 5% solutions, a 15% solution could be far more dangerous for people to use.
Although minoxidil does have a low occurrence of side effects if it’s in a high-quality mixture. I have heard of people having problems with redness and irritation occurring in cheaper, lower quality formulas. However, the more serious side effects of minoxidil are increased as you increase the dosage of minoxidil in your solution.
Some of the more serious side effects of minoxidil 15 are: Red, flaky, irritated skin, chest pain, faintness or dizziness, sudden unexplained weight gain, swelling of hands or feet, unwanted facial hair growth.
Although not every single person who uses minoxidil 15% will have all of those negative side effects, it’s still a good idea for people to stay away from it if it’s banned by the FDA. I realize it may work for some people, but when the potential risks outweigh the rewards, I’d say it’s best to just find something else that’s effective and has a much lower risk for side effects.
Because I get asked this question more than any other question on my blog, I’m going to just say that the hair loss product I personally recommend is called HairIntegro. It’s a great minoxidil formula with an oral supplement that works on about 93% of people who use it.
