Together with leading compounding pharmacists, MHR has released a capsule which combines spironolactone plus Minoxidil. This capsule for women contains two well recognized medicines for the treatment of female pattern hair loss. The combination has been available overseas, but MHR is the first to make it available to South African women struggling to manage female pattern hair loss.
Low dose oral minoxidil is considered safe although caution is required in those with severe hypertension and cardiovascular risk. We recommend that any of our female patients with a history of heart conditions or severe hypertension discuss the treatment with their physicians before starting.
