Below is a list of treatments that are currently used for hair loss in women.
Some of these drugs have been approved by the FDA only for this specific condition, however they have all been approved for other medical conditions and are used without following the label instructions to treat hair loss.
The efficacy of these agents and methods will vary from person to person, but many women have found that using these treatments has made possible a difference in your hair and on your self esteem.
Minoxidil 2% Topical Treatment
Minoxidil is a vasodilator that initially was used as a pill to treat high blood pressure (an anti hypertensive). It was found that the drug had a side effect that could be good for some people, this side effect was excessive hair growth (hypertrichosis)
Further investigation showed that applying a solution of minoxidil directly to the scalp could also stimulate hair growth.
The amount of minoxidil absorbed by the blood flow through the skin is normally too small to cause any side effects
Women with androgenic alopecia can use minoxidil diffuse and indeed appears to be more effective the drug in women than in men.
The manufacturers of minoxidil recommend women use the concentration to 2% instead of 5%.
The FDA has not approved the concentration of 5% and some dermatologists prescribe it only if the treatment is under their supervision.
Small clinical trials have shown that 5% solution of minoxidil is indeed more efficient, retaining both hair and making it grow, that the solution of 2%.
Clinical studies in white women aged between 18-45 and you understood hair loss levels from mild to moderate who used minoxidil showed that 19% of women had a moderate hair regrowth after using minoxidil for 8 months ( 19% had a moderate regrowth least 40% regrowth).
This compares with 7% of women who had a moderate regrowth after using a placebo, liquid without the active ingredient, for 8 months (7% had moderate regrowth regrowth and 33% minimum).
Androgen receptor inhibitors.
Aldactone / Spironolactone
Spironolactone, Aldactone trademark is a diuretic which reduces the amount of fluid in the body without causing loss of potassium. It is also used ara hypertension, edema, potassium deficiency and hyperaldosteronism (a hormonal problem).
Spironolactone is an anti androgen which works in two ways. First decrease androgen production in the adrenal glands and ovaries. Second blocks the action of androgens in part by preventing dihydrotestosterone from binding to its androgenetic receptor.
Tagamet / Cimetidine
Cimetidine sold under the tradename Tagamet, belongs to a class of histamine blockers (molecule involved in immune response) used primarily for treating gastrointestinal ulcers.
I don't know if ethnicity has anything to do2010-07-07 16:22:46 by IdoColor
With your hair loss/regrowth issues, but I have a couple Caucasian female clients who were having some issues with thinning hair, and they both went on Rogaine (one went on the one for women, the other went for the stronger men's one) and both have seen some really amazing results.
I just colored the one that's on the woman's Rogaine, and I am completely surprised by the amount of new growth she has. She tried the men's as well, but couldn't stand the smell. I haven't seen the other client who's on the men's Rogaine, but as far as I've been told, they are the same, the men's is just stronger
