Buy Minoxidil Tablets Online in the UK
Oral minoxidil tablets available online in the UK are specifically designed to combat early stages of hair loss in men, typically occurring at the crown and temples. These tablets are suitable for individuals who prefer taking medication orally instead of applying it topically.
The oral tablets work by enhancing blood and oxygen circulation in blood vessels, revitalizing and awakening shrunken hair follicles.
Minoxidil tablets is an unlicenced medicine offered by OxfordOnlinePharmacy for off-label use in treating male pattern baldness. Minoxidil is also available as a topical solution for hair application, and there is a branded version known as Regaine, available as foam or solution. Additionally, the brand Loniten offers minoxidil tablets.
How do minoxidil tablets work?
Similar to the topical form of minoxidil, oral minoxidil operates by relaxing the muscular walls of blood vessels through a process called vasodilation. This relaxation widens the blood vessels, facilitating improved blood flow to specific areas of the scalp, thereby delivering essential nutrients and oxygen required for stimulating hair growth.
Some individuals argue that oral minoxidil, which directly enters the body's system, is more effective than other application methods. This is because minoxidil typically necessitates activation by the sulfotransferase enzyme, which is found in the liver and on the scalp. However, certain individuals may lack this enzyme on their scalps, and oral minoxidil bypasses this requirement by using the same enzyme in the liver.
How long does it take for minoxidil to be effective?
It may require consistent usage for approximately 4-6 months before noticeable enhancements in hair growth become apparent. Additionally, it is important to note that when initiating minoxidil treatment, it is common to experience increased hair shedding, typically within the initial six weeks of use.
What does an unlicensed medicine mean?
In the United Kingdom, an unlicensed medicine refers to a medication that lacks approval from the Medicines and Healthcare products Regulatory Agency (MHRA). The licensing process involves a formal assessment conducted by the regulatory authority, which evaluates the medicine's safety, quality, and effectiveness based on clinical trials and scientific evidence.
Unlicensed medicines may include products imported from other countries, compounded by pharmacists, or used off-label (for conditions or populations not specified in the license). It is essential to note that unlicensed medicines are not necessarily unsafe or ineffective. However, they do not possess specific regulatory approval for their designated use or market in the UK.

Using minoxidil 2.5mg tablets as an off-label treatment for hair loss:
Minoxidil 2.5mg tablets is usually prescribed to treat raised blood pressure (but in much higher doses than the hair-loss treatment). However, it can also be prescribed "off-label" to treat hair loss in men. "Off-label" means that the medicine is being used to treat condition other than it was initially licensed to treat.
This means that the conditions listed in the patient information leaflet will not match the treatment of hair loss using this medicine. You should always follow the instructions on the dispensing label on your medicine and contact us if you have any questions about the medication or your treatment.
Side effects are uncommon and typically reversible. Potential side effects may include excessive hair growth (hypertrichosis) in other body areas, headaches, and fluid retention.
It is normal for your existing hair to shed during the initial 2-4 months, which is actually a positive indication! It signifies that the medication is effective and your hair is entering a new growth phase.
