If you are experiencing hair loss, you have likely exhausted every over-the-counter option. You may have bought all the creams and serums and have tried all the fad shampoos and conditioners but have yet to be successful. You may feel frustrated or confused about the lack of results. You may feel like there is no other solution than to give up.
Doctors usually prescribe medication after you’ve tried everything else. First, they typically begin with a prescription serum or cream because of their lower side-issue risk. Then, they will likely move on to oral medications when that fails.
Only a few oral hair-loss medications do not work for everyone. The most popular type is usually prescribed only to men. Finasteride, or Propecia, is a daily pill to stimulate hair growth. The medicine works by lowering your body’s DHT (dihydrotestosterone) levels, thereby shrinking hair follicles. Though the medication generally stops or limits hair loss, the pill takes at least six months to start working and can cause some side effects, like lowered sex drive, even after you stop taking the medication.
Spironolactone (Aldactone) is another medication that doctors often prescribe.Though primarily for high blood pressure, some find it effective against hair loss. You cannot take this pill when pregnant, however, because it is known to cause congenital disabilities.
Generally, the only other medication used is Flutamide, but its use is limited because of the risk of liver failure. Doctors only prescribe this medication in very severe cases.
