Oral Medication

Non-surgical options:
Whilst surgery will give the best result in improving your appearance, not everyone is suitable for that and there are alternative treatment options available today. These include scientifically proven medications such as oral and topical hairsprays in 3% and 5% preparations. These two treatments are approved by the FDA for hair loss treatment and numerous articles have been published on the efficacy of the treatments.

Oral medication
There is currently only one oral medication that is FDA approved and used specifically for the treatment of male pattern hair loss (MPHL). This comes in a tablet form that is taken once a day. In MPHL, there is an over production of dihydrotestosterone (DHT) in the body. DHT is produced when testosterone is converted by the enzyme 5-alpha-reductase. DHT suffocates and causes hair loss in susceptible males and to a lesser extent, females as well.

PropeciaThe oral medication works to stop the 5-alpha-reductase enzyme action. As a result, there is a decrease of DHT level in the scalp. This will lead to hair growth and thickening of existing hairs. The medication needs to be taken continuously for at least 12 months in order to achieve results. Remember when it comes to oral medication, it takes 3 months to slow (the hair loss). 3 months to grow (for any new hair to start growing) and 3 months to show (any obvious growth)

The oral medication has been prescribed for more than 10 years successfully. There have been reports of men experiencing some sexual dysfunction as a side effect. Very often, the side effects are transient, meaning that they go away as the body gets accustomed to the medication. In others, the side effects stop only when the medication is discontinued. Thankfully, the number of patients affected remain a small proportion, at around 1%. The majority of patients will benefit from oral treatment without any side effects at all.

To date, oral medication is prescribed mainly for men, but in certain instances, post-menopausal women have also benefitted too. This is based on a case-by-case basis, subject to a thorough evaluation by the doctor in charge.
