    TLDR Oral minoxidil promotes hair growth but may cause side effects; needs monitoring.
    This document is a compilation of reviews and studies on the efficacy and safety of oral minoxidil for hair loss treatment. The studies suggest that oral minoxidil can be effective in promoting hair growth, but it also has potential side effects such as fluid retention, weight gain, and cardiovascular issues. The recommended dosage ranges from 0.2mg to 5mg daily, and response to treatment should be monitored within 6 months. The studies also suggest that oral minoxidil can be a viable option for patients who struggle with topical treatments, but it requires careful patient monitoring and medical guidance.
