Hypertension: In my opinion there are better choices than minoxidil such as a diuretic like hydrochlorothiazide, or an ace inhibitor like lisinopril or an arb like cozaar (losartan) or avapro. Of course his physician or cardiologist, who knows his condition and laboratory values, is better qualified to recommend treatment.
