Hair Loss/Hair thinning and hair loss


Hello Doc,

       I've been asking you many types of hair loss question. Latest you gave me suggestion on using Finasteride. But after treatment of 5% Minoxidil for 1 year, she has now prescribed me Bioexidil (Capixyl) treatment which is still not giving pleasant effect, as of week gone by now. Is it more effective than Minoxidil? Because i think Minoxidil was giving fine results, or Capixyl requires time? Please suggest me what to do or what should i tell my doctor? Thank You.

Dear Gaurav,

I do not recall your question nor my response concerning Finasteride. I am unsure whether you are taking BOTH Minoxidil and Capixyl (and what about Finasteride)???  I do not believe that Capixyl is as effective as the other 2 (drugs).  There are many peptide and/or Natural Extract combinations that purport to help. I would also certainly advise that 1 week is not nearly enough to determine the efficacy of ANY product.  With hair growth/regrowth issues it is usually recommended to stick to a particular program or product for 3-6 months.

Please answer the above question and I will try to help as much as possible.

Best Regards.
