Hair loss can be one of the most complex parts of getting older. Hair color, thickness, and style hold great significance in our culture. Hair loss can profoundly affect our self-worth and confidence.
Several topical medications target hair loss. Different hair loss medications cater to men or women. Here’s a list of medicines for your hair loss concerns.
Hair loss medication for women:
- Minoxidil (Rogaine): Originally for high blood pressure, doctors realized Rogaine treats hair loss. The cream, when applied to the scalp, stimulates hair growth. Note: the medication might promote facial hair growth.
- Androgen Receptor Inhibitors: Aldactone and Cyproterone Acetate are hair loss-fighting creams. Due to their toxicity, they’re usually a last resort.
- Estrogen and Progesterone: Estrogen and Progesterone creams help with menopause-related hair loss.
Hair loss medications for men:
- Finasteride (Propecia, Proscar): Finasteride is an FDA-approved daily medication for male baldness.
Minoxidil: Rogaine provides male and female formulas, with the men’s version targeting severe baldness.
