Hair Loss Treatment Type:
Potassium (K+) channel opener
This is a potassium channel opener used in the treatment of heart conditions primarily. Tests show that it works for hair growth in the same way as minoxidil.
Studies show Cromakalim works similarly to minoxidil. Larger studies have not been done to ascertain its effectiveness, but the drug is included in an Upjohn patent of potassium channel openers in the treatment of hair loss.
Thoroughly tested by the FDA.
