    TLDR Minoxidil, a blood pressure drug, can cause excessive hair growth, but this can be successfully treated with a hair removal agent called calcium thioglycolate.
    In 1977, a study was conducted on the side effects of Minoxidil, an antihypertensive drug, which was found to cause hypertrichosis, an excessive hair growth, particularly in women. This side effect was treated successfully in five female patients using a calcium thioglycolate depilatory agent, which is used for hair removal.
