Loniten (Minoxidil) is a prescription medication is used to treat severe high blood pressure (hypertension) that is causing symptoms or damage in your vital organs. It relaxes (widens) blood vessels and improves blood flow. This medication is usually given together with two other medications to help prevent serious side effects. Loniten belongs to a class of medications called vasodilators, and works by relaxing the blood vessels around the heart, which improves blood flow, and in turn lowers blood pressure. Loniten tablets should not be used to promote scalp hair growth period only the topical form of minoxidil (rogaine) is recommended for that use. Loniten may also be used for purposes not listed above.
