    Default ED drugs and hair growth

    Just curious to know if people here using ED drugs have noticed some hair growth from it? I haven't tried myself but there is evidence that it would help to some degree.

    What's an ED drug?

    I've used cialis every now and then for a couple of years now. I can't say it ever did anything for my hair, although I wasn't taking it daily.
    Never seen anything to suggest it would help.

    For the record, I don't suffer from ed, I was just taking them for nights out where alcohol might hinder erection quality. Disclaimer: don't do that, apparently it's not good for the heart to mix these drugs with alcohol.

    High blood pressure and MPB are linked, those drugs lower blood pressure, so does minoxidil...

    There shouldn't be an effect either way. They only affect vasodilation and are not hormonal. I guess in theory they could help if it improved perfusion to the hair follicle, but I would think you'd have to take a lot systemically to the point of tanking your blood pressure to affect this

    ED drugs do lower blood pressure to some extend as this is what they were intended to do at first. The effect of minoxidil is mainly to lower blood pressure as well and was designed for that at first as well.
