Generic Minoxidil is the active constituent of Tugain 5% which is an antihypertensive vasodilator drug. Minoxidil acts by opening potassium channels and allows more blood, oxygen and nutrients to the follicle. Because of this, follicles come in the telogen phase and shed. These telogen phase follicles are then replaced by thicker hairs in a new anagen phase. It is less effective if there is a large area of hair loss. It is more effective in younger men who have experienced hair loss for less than 5 years.
