Is Spironolactone successful at helping regrow hair from PCOS?
Chanpen88,How long have you been on this regimen? Results vary but about 1/3 have a good improvement. Looks like your physician has on a therapeutic dose. Continue doing the necessary follow up for blood testing, and care with your doctor.There are other very effective treatments like PRP/Acell , and Laser therapy.All the best,

In a word; Yes. If you can go higher on the dose without negative effect, you might try that with your physician's supervision as well. Spironolactone is dose dependent and clinically I have seen the best results in the 100mg BID (so 200mg total per day) dose range. Also try adding LLLT/PBMT, HelpHair shakes, and ketoconazole or zinc shampoos. I have no financial arrangement with these companies, but when it comes to medications for hair, everything works together, so do MORE instead of less!
