Has anyone here used Minoxidil for hair or beard growth? If yes, then share your results with everyone here.

First of all -- and you likely know this already -- Minoxidil is not approved for hair loss other than on the scalp.  There may be serious health risks associated with using it other than as indicated on the label.  Secondly, there is little-to-no evidence that it works for increasing body or beard hair.  From what I have read, many of the "success" stories of this use have come from men in their early 20s or younger, who may have been on the point of growing new hair naturally.

Now, knowing all of that, I did try applying it to my chest (and frequently to my beard ; I have a small area that doesn't want to grow hair) "just to see" if it did anything.  I used it consistently for about two months, then for another month after a break (in my mid-30s).  To be completely honest -- it may have done something.  I have a little bit the impression that I have more visible hairs on the edges of my chest than I did before.  However, I did not take before and after pictures, so it is very hard to tell for certain.  IF it did make a difference, however, it was a very slight one.  I am not very hairy to begin with, so any differences would be easy to see, and I am still not certain there were any at all.  If you cannot grow a thick beard and are hoping to fill it out, you will likely be disappointed.

Now, it is your life.  If you want to experiment, it is your decision.  However, please be aware that it is potentially dangerous (always consider the risks), and if you choose to try it anyway, I recommend not having any expectations at the beginning, so you are not disappointed if nothing happens.

that's not what that is used for...if it is to block sebum and promote hair growth for thinning wouldn't work on the chin or beard hair. best to take some multivitamins and live with what you can grow

I have never used it. It is wise to think twice before using any chemicals on your face. I would suggest try taking Biotin supplements which is good for skin and hair.
But in order to get facial hair, you may need to increase Testosterone level in your body I guess....  so try some exercises and food that can help you increase that hormone.
