In brief: Sounds possible
Minoxidil inside one's body can lower blood pressure.
The amount of Minoxidil entering the body is hard to predict and depends on things such as the condition of the skin, the number of applications per day, the amount of skin that receives minoxidil, and the length of time it stays on the skin. One can work with his doctor and do trials on & off minoxidil, while monitoring for dizziness symptoms.
