I’m currently looking to get on something to halt and regrow any hair ive lost. I have a prolactinoma and being treated for it. I came across this and many other articles that mentioned minoxidil can cause a prolactinoma and im worried about starting it as mine is currently being treated and could worsen it.
But what im wondering is if the article is meaning oral or topical ? and if would it be safe to use topical minox with my condition thanks
For those that aren’t familiar, a prolactinoma is a benign tumor of the pituitary gland, usually resulting in an increased level of prolactin produced.
I’m not sure which specific article you’re referring to, but anything topical can be absorbed into your system. In fact, many people taking minoxidil had systemic side effects. Your own doctor should know more about this, particularly when it comes to your medical care.
