Hair Loss Medication
There are several hair loss medications on the market today. Propecia is a medication for mild to moderate male pattern baldness. This medication uses the drug finasteride to decrease hair loss and increase hair growth on top of the head. It is not effective for a receding hair line. Propecia comes in pill form and is taken once daily. It is very important that women do not take or handle these pills, as they have been shown to cause birth defects.
Rogaine is a well known hair loss medication. Rogaine, using the drug minoxidil, comes in formulations for men and women. This cream is rubbed into the scalp twice a day and takes about four months to show results. It claims to re-grow hair by stimulating and enlarging the hair follicles. If you stop using Rogaine, you will continue to lose hair.
