The chances of having blood clots as a reaction to AstraZeneca are very slim, and the question of that vaccine interacting with specific regular medications people take, such as Rogaine, might not have been studied. If an interaction between the vaccine and minoxidil is even known, the person to ask about it is the doctor who prescribed the minoxidil.
Just wondering, if the connection hasn't been studied how will the doctor know? These vaccines are experimental medicine in that we're in a humongous crisis and we need to beat that crisis more than we need to worry about anything else right now and I am way pro vaccine because of that and have gotten mine and encourage everyone to get theirs pretty much as a duty to humanity everywhere. But again, they are all being used under emergency approval, and given the conditions we've been living under of isolation and not seeing doctors except for absolutely necessary things, is there any reason to have confidence docs would know the answer at this juncture? I ask because the number of hypothetically blood thinning substances we regularly consume are mind numbing. To name a few you are encouraged to stop two weeks before surgery, there's fish oil, which I would assume would theoretically extrapolate to eating a lot of fish as well but that's never mentioned, turmeric, ginger, bromelain, garlic, onions, quercitin, I mean, seriously, the list is really long. They're really talking about supplements, but it would again theoretically apply to the foods as well if you eat a lot of it, wouldn't it? Which raises the problem that a lot of warnings are theoretical rather than seen in real humans all that much. I'd certainly want to know the answer to your question, but I'm certain nobody knows the answer. We don't even know yet if the connection between the blood clots and the vaccine are real, because in every case the clots were concerning but still much fewer than are seen in the population as a whole absent a vaccine. I think you raise a great issue that your doctor will probably give you a vacant stare about, but in time, when we have the time to really look at how these vaccines have affected the population, we'll know a lot more. And that shouldn't give anyone pause about getting a vaccine, because that's also true with all the drugs we take even when they have gone through the entire approval process. It still takes a decade or more to really learn what happens when a new drug is loosed on a large number of people, as trials are small and pharmaceutical companies lie about every product they produce, which is why they get fined so often and sued successfully so often. It's just a cost of doing business. Peace.
