Morr Forte solution containing minoxidil 5%, when applied topically, should stimulate hair growth in persons with androgenetic alopecia (male pattern baldness).
Chemically, minoxidil is 2,4-diamino-6-piperidinopyrimidine-3-oxide.
When applied topically, minoxidil solution for external use has been shown to stimulate hair growth in individuals with androgenetic alopecia (male pattern baldness). Although the exact mechanisms of action of minoxidil in the treatment of androgenetic alopecia are not known, there may be several ways this drug can stimulate hair growth. These include:
- Vasodilation of the microvasculature around the hair follicles, which enhances hair growth;
- Direct stimulation of hair follicle cells, which induces them to enter the proliferative phase: follicles in the resting phase (telogen) enter the active phase (anagen);
- Disruption of the effect of androgens on genetically predisposed hair follicles: Minoxidil can interfere with androgen metabolism in the scalp, suppressing the ability of androgens to act on hair follicles.
Clinical studies conducted with Minoxidil 5% Solution show that the expected stimulation of hair growth may require application of the drug for 4 months or more. The duration of the onset of drug action and the degree of its activity may differ among patients.

Warnings and special instructions for minoxidil 5% Morr Forte
Some absorption of minoxidil from the skin surface creates the possibility of developing systemic effects such as tachycardia, angina pectoris and edema, and an increased likelihood of orthostatic hypotension caused by guanethidine. Patients should be monitored dynamically to identify possible systemic effects of minoxidil. If systemic side effects appear, the drug should be discontinued. If necessary, diuretic drugs should be used to treat fluid retention and edema. Control of tachycardia and angina pectoris is possible by prescribing drugs from the group of beta-blockers or other inhibitors of the activity of the sympathetic nervous system.
Pregnancy and lactation: Preparations based on minoxidil during pregnancy and lactation can only be used as directed by the attending physician.
Childhood: The safety and efficacy of minoxidil-based drugs in patients under 18 years of age has not been established.

If the patient has any other cardiovascular disease, the solution should be used with caution.
Elderly use: No studies have been performed with people over the age of 60. In this regard, the safety and efficacy of the drug in these patients has not been identified.
