MHR’s Minox(idil) 5MG & Spirono(lactone) 25MG Capsules For Women


Together with leading compounding pharmacists, MHR has released a capsule for women which combines Spirono(lactone) plus Minox(idil). This capsule 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 minox(idil) is considered safe although patients with heart disease, pregnant or planning to become pregnant or breastfeeding should not take it. For the Spironolactone component, we recommend that any patients with a history of heart conditions or severe hypertension, kidney problems, liver problems, untreated mineral imbalance (such as high potassium, low sodium), or decreased adrenal gland function (Addison’s disease) discuss the treatment with our hair doctors before starting.
