Drug Interactions With Minoxidil

Prostacyclin Analogs
Combining minoxidil with a prostacyclin analog may lower your blood pressure. Your healthcare provider may want to closely monitor your blood pressure when you start using minoxidil.
Using minoxidil within 12 hours of receiving rituximab could lower your blood pressure to unsafe levels. Talk to your healthcare provider about this possible interaction if you are on rituximab.
Topical Medications Applied Directly on the Scalp
Using minoxidil with other topical medications may increase the amount of minoxidil that is absorbed into your bloodstream, potentially increasing your risk for serious side effects. Do not use minoxidil with other medications applied to the scalp.

Final Thoughts

It is possible that not all minoxidil drug interactions were discussed in this article. Therefore, you should talk with your pharmacist or healthcare provider about specific interactions that may apply to you.
Also, make sure to tell your healthcare provider about all the medications you are taking (including prescription drugs, nonprescription drugs, and vitamins or supplements), even if you do not think they will interact with other medications.
