    Rogaine is the only product proven to stop hair loss and possibly regrow hair. Honestly, the sooner you start, the better; once the hair follicle is dead, that's it. I waited far too long to start rogaine. I wish I started it 10 years ago.

      I looked into this, but it's sort of a last resort. I'm afraid of it giving me more facial hair because of it rubbing on my pillow.

    My dermatologist prescribed me oral Minoxidil 1mg/day, which is the active ingredient in topical rogaine. Hairs are definitely less shedding but not sure if it's from Minoxidil or Spiro. I have taken months to get to this stage!

      I was on Spironolactone but stopped because I started having some health issues 3 months after starting. Thyroid issues, hemochromatosis (too much iron in my blood), and both of those also cause hair loss.

      The Spironolactone was working too, I wasn’t losing any hair, and now that I stopped, I am shedding hairs again. I also have gallbladder issues now, so I don’t want to take any meds that could make anything worse.

    Have you had your thyroid checked? Mine got better after I got my thyroid under control.

      I think it was checked years ago. I'll have them check again.

        There is a book called stop the thyroid madness that really helped me. I took it to my doctor and told her what I wanted to do, and she was happy to help. Some are not as willing I've heard. Good luck!
