Major Drawbacks of Oral Medications for Hair Regrowth

Hair loss is the loss of hair from the scalp or body. Alopecia is the medical term for hair loss. There are many different causes of alopecia, some temporary and some permanent. Hair loss is more common in men, but nowadays it is seen that both men and women are equally affected by hair loss and other hair related issues.

Medications for hair loss can slow the lessening of hair and increase coverage of the scalp by enlarging existing hair and growing new hair. However, they need to be taken continuously. Once the medication is stopped, all the grown hair will gradually be lost, and within 6 to 12 months the scalp will most likely appear the same as before treatment. Famous medications like Propecia and Rogaine (minoxidil) work in entirely different ways. Rogaine is a liquid that is applied to the scalp twice daily while Propecia is a pill taken once daily.

Propecia (Finasteride)

Propecia (Finasteride) has been available since 1997 and is the first and only oral medication approved by the FDA for the treatment of male pattern hair loss.

Propecia is not permitted for women. Propecia will only work over the long term if you continue taking it and is not a cure for hair loss. You will likely lose any hair you have gained within 12 months of stopping treatment if you stop taking Propecia. It may cause sexual side effects such as difficulty in achieving an erection or decreased sexual desire. The continuous treatment with Propecia can be costly.


Rogaine (Minoxidil)

Rogaine (Minoxidil) was originally developed for high blood pressure, but then it was noticed that people on minoxidil sometimes grew new hair, so the drug was reformulated for this purpose. Rogaine was the first FDA approved drug for the treatment of male pattern hair loss and still, the only FDA approved treatment for women with hair loss.

Rogaine is not a treatment for hair loss. It will only work over the long term if you continue using it. If you stop using Rogaine you will likely lose any hair you have achieved. It also has limited effectiveness. It does not work for hair loss at the hairline and on the top of the head. This medication may not help men with severe balding. Rogaine topical lotion is a colorless, fragrance-free, and non-greasy liquid that dries rapidly and without any noticeable deposit, some people simply do not like putting lotions on their scalp. Also, it can be of the high cost.

I am honestly thankful to Advanced Hair Studios. I suffer from a hair-pulling disorder. There is this constant urge to pull off your hair follicles. It is painless when you pull but extremely painful when you see a missing patch on your scalp. But, I feel blessed with AHS hair fall treatment. I can see baby hair growing. It’s been two weeks. All I can see is low hair fall.

I have done my hair transplant surgery in AHS Delhi Branch on 2019 by travelling to Delhi from Dhaka, Bangladesh. The front and the back portion of my head were bald and through the hair transplant surgery, they have managed to cover the front portion of my head and the former appearance of my face returned back. The way they collected hairs from the donor portion did not affect my donor area at all. I am quite happy with my result. I have been consulting with them for a second seating so that they can cover the back portion of my head as well so that the hair density on top will increase and the bald portion of my head will reduce to a minimum level.
