Minoxidil Pills Pharmaceutical Information

Although many people with high blood pressure do not complain, it should be treated, because if left untreated, it can increase the risk of heart disease, stroke and other serious illnesses. If other medications are not enough to control high blood pressure, you may also be prescribed Minoxidil tablets.

Minoxidil increases the strength of your blood vessel wall muscles. This means that the drug does its job by dilating the blood vessels. As blood vessels dilate, the pressure inside the blood vessels decreases and over time leads to a decrease in high blood pressure, as well as blood and oxygen moving freely around your body. Medications such as minoxidil are prescribed to help regulate the amount of water and salt in the body as well as control your heart rate.
