Lonitab 10 mg is an orally active anti-hypertensive drug-containing Minoxidil as the active ingredient. Minoxidil is a member of drug class vasodilators, which works by relaxing blood vessels and improving blood circulation. Lonitab is commonly prescribed for treating high blood pressure and hair loss issues. The medicine helps improve hair follicles' blood flow by widening blood vessels.

The medicine is specially formulated for hypertensive patients who do not respond to maximum therapeutic doses of diuretic (water pill) and a combination of two anti-hypertensive drugs. For best results, the medicine should be used under the supervision of a doctor, usually in combination with a beta-blocker drug to prevent myocardial workload. Your doctor may also prescribe a water pill to prevent serious fluid accumulation.
Regular blood pressure and general health checks are necessary while receiving Lonitab 10 mg for treating high blood pressure or hair loss.

Mention all medicines you have been using to reduce high blood pressure. Some medicines can interact with Lonitab 10 mg and cause a significant drop in blood pressure. Let your doctor know if you are using guanethidine or betadine while treatment with Minoxidil. Do not stop the treatment without consulting your doctor.
