Yes, there would be no expected interactions if used together. However, as both are typically twice-daily medications and either one can theoretically decrease absorption of the other, it would be best to alternate applications...e.g. Minoxidil, TAC, Minoxidil, TAC...etc.

I feel so much better today, and upon further investigation believe that there is a chance that the responses I got saved me from a serious, even life threatening situation. I am very grateful to the experts who answered me.

I feel better already! Thank you.

ElanorTracy, CA

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

JulieLockesburg, AR

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.
