The Secret Dangers of Pharmaceuticals for Hair Loss Prevention

Losing hair in clumps? Desperately seeking hair loss remedies? Then you know the internet is crawling with “how to regrow hair for men” pop ups. But you’re probably not desperate enough to try these unproven options.

You may assume your doctor is informed, and understands how to regrow thinning hair in a healthy, regenerative way. But telling him or her about your follicle woes is likely to get you a prescription for the same generic pharmaceuticals that have been prescribed for decades.

Those decades have provided researchers plenty of time to share clinical trial and case study results that demonstrate the scary side effects of these pharmaceuticals.

You don’t have to look far to see headlines about Big Pharma bungling, and hair loss drugs are no exception. From your heart health, to your cancer risk, to your sexual function – these drugs carry risks that you really don’t need to take.

Stephanie Wolff, P.A.-C at Novus Anti-Aging Center knows that your hair deserves better. As a functional medicine thought leader who left behind those traditional doctors years ago, she is adamant about offering natural, non-invasive solutions that won’t break your wallet.

That’s why she prescribes and monitors Nutrafol supplements for hair loss in females and in males – which each have a distinct baldness pattern. Avoid risks and side effects. Allow your body’s regenerative abilities to regrow your hair with a natural boost. Click here to learn more about Nutrafol today!

What’s wrong with popular hair loss medications?

Conventional medicine’s most common hair loss solution these days is prescribing finasteride pills with minoxidil – a topical treatment. And if you want to keep your hair growing, you have to keep taking them, of course. Long term use of finasteride increases your risk of prostate cancer, and can cause:

  • erectile dysfunction
  • abnormal ejaculation
  • decreased libido
  • skin rash
  • swollen hands
  • swollen breasts
  • tender breasts
  • runny nose
  • headache

Minoxidil was developed primarily as a vasodilator to treat hypertension. It’s usually taken in pill form along with a diuretic, and triggers the widening of the blood vessels, to reduce blood pressure. As users adjust to their lower body pressure, they can experience dizziness and drowsiness.

This is an expected side effect of using minoxidil for hypertension, but it shouldn’t happen when using the drug for hair loss, and must be stopped immediately. It has sent some users to the ER, and some have even passed out from minoxidil! It also contains propylene glycol, which can provoke dermatitis.

Other side effects reported by users include:

  • lengthening or color change of facial hair
  • bags and dark circles under eyes (even after stopping use)
  • swelling of hands and feet
  • weight gain
  • tiredness
  • nausea
  • tender or painful breasts
  • dizziness and palpitations
  • chest pain and difficulty breathing

So, if this pharma combo can potentially cause such nasty effects, why are doctors prescribing it every day? Many of them are trained to only prescribe medication that treat only the symptoms of hair loss – they aren’t skilled in seeking the root cause of those symptoms. It also doesn’t help that Pharma reps are aggressively pushing product – and other incentives, as you may have heard in the news.
