i was wondering is rogaine safe. i hear that rogaine causes heart attacks but you know how people are. i just had a hair transplant and wanted to see if it was safe. thank you doctor
High doses of Rogaine (minoxidil) can drop your blood pressure and may not be a good idea if you have existing heart disease. I can imagine some case where a person uses minoxidil and has one of a variety of existing heart conditions, and the medication causes a drop in blood pressure leading to a heart attack… but that is theoretical and I have not actually heard that such a case exists.
So to answer your question, Rogaine does not cause heart attacks.
