I am a 22 year old male and use 5% minoxidil either once or twice a day. My new schedule makes it hard for me to use minoxidil everyday and am wondering if using it every other day will
still be effective.
Every other day is not the recommended dose and you probably will not get much, if any benefit from it. Twice a day is the only way to use it. At the age of 22, if this is male pattern baldness (MPB), then Propecia (finasteride 1mg) is the preferred way to go, not minoxidil. I’ve seen much better results in the younger men taking Propecia than those using minoxidil.
