High Blood Pressure Medicine

Minoxidil

Thursday, September 21, 2006

Minoxidil is the most potent of the that lower blood pressure by dilating the peripheral arteries. This drug, however, does not work through the peripheral sympathetic nervous system, as do the alpha and beta-blocker drugs, or through the control center in the brain, as does clonidine. Rather, it is a muscle relaxant that works directly on the smooth muscle of the peripheral arteries throughout the body. Minoxidil is used for patients who have not responded to any other medications. It must be combined with a beta-blocker or clonidine to prevent an increase in the heart rate and with a diuretic to prevent retention of fluid. Minoxidil may also increase hair growth. For more information, please see the drug monograph on Minoxidil.
