The loss of vision is probably not related unless you have a pituitary problem causing your hypothyroidism. You need to discuss w/your doctor and probably an opthamologist. ...Read more

Monoxidile topical solution USP 5.               Can we use on face to grown hair  and  when we are using on face any side effects, please conform ?

Off-label: Minoxidil will stimulate hair growth on any skin surface that normally grows hair, including the face, but it is only approved for treatment of the scalp, so use on the face is "off-label." the most likely side effect would be an allergic or irritant rash due to one or more components of the solution. ...Read more
