I know this might sound like a stupid question. what would happen If you experience chest pains because of minoxidil/rogaine but never stop?
I experience chest pains but wasn't sure what is causing it. Is it the alcohol that I'm consuming on Fridays and Saturdays, the pre-workout creatine called N.O. explode, or minox liquid foam/rogaine?
My chest pain comes and goes and I've experience it for quite a while.
