Hair Loss Treatment with Spironolactone

Spironolactone (trade name Aldactone) is a diuretic used to treat high blood pressure. It also possesses anti-androgenic properties and is used to treat acne, excess body hair and hereditary hair loss in women. When it comes to treating female hair loss spironolactone is considered to be the only alternative to the most powerful male hair loss pill Propecia (finasteride) although it has not been approved by the FDA as a hair loss treatment. However, due to its strong feminising effects oral spironolactone should not be used in men. Despite that many male hair loss patients are also experimenting with this drug. Caution is advised here as men should not take this drug orally and, if at all, should only use the topical applications. Spiro cream is one such application and it is relatively popular among male hair loss patients.

The problem with using spironolactone for treating female pattern baldness is to get it prescribed as most dermatologists have either never heard of spironolactone’s positive effects on hair loss in women and/or are not allowed to prescribe this drug to their patients. It very much depends on the country where you live and its legislation as well as the knowledge and experience of your doctor. Solution of the last resort is to buy spironolactone online. There are online pharmacies that may or may not require a prescription but many of them are ready to issue you one upon completion of the online consultation form. Should you decide to try this drug for your hair loss and should there be no other option to buy it than the online pharmacy make sure you get some advice from you doctor even though he/she cannot recommend and prescribe it to you and abandon the treatment immediately if any negative side effects emerge.
