Hey Doc, love the site.
Question: What is you opinion on taking minoxidil for preventive measures if a man has significant hairloss in his family and has marginal miniaturization.
I have no objections, but there is no point to using it if you’re not seeing hair loss. It would be a commitment issue for you to do it religiously every day, twice a day, plus you’d have a risk of side effects that all minoxidil users have. I’m not sure what you mean by marginal miniaturization, but I wouldn’t suggest you take a medication if you don’t need it. You don’t take insulin because your family history has diabetics, right?
