hair/ b12/spiro' finasteride

i asked for hrt for my hair that was a big no, i aksed my endo and gp-- endo offered spironlactone, the affects of that are horrendous in comparison to hrt---- i told him so as well but still wont agree on hrt,-- i then asked gp for extra b12, for my hair,

he said only if a specialist says so- i asked endo- he said he didnt mind agreeing to that, so now he has written a letter saying that he had offered spiro or finasteride and i thought the affects were too bad, but NO he hadnt mentioned finasteride but i was wondering ,if i should actually say i

will have that, barts endo , offered it years ago which i did take but maybe not long enough- women who are child bearing age have to steer well clear as it affects the testicles of unborn babies but women past menopause can take it-- shall i or shant i? also i have

a loading dose now which i never had before of b12, but that is for 11 doses, then i am back to onei nject every 3months ,cant see the point of one evrey three months???

  • Mmm - one thing I've learnt is never to complain to medical doctors that your hair is falling out. They do SFA.

    If you want a drug that helps with hair loss it is best to research what other things it helps with, then if you have some of them highlight those instead.

  • when you have hairlike mine or no hairlikemine i have to complain- its hormonal
