Default Which one works better for hair loss, Regaine or Medigro?

My pharmacy guy insist that I should try Medigro Hair Loss Treatment instead of Regaine saying that Regaine must be used all life but Medigro Hair Loss Treatment is used for 3 to 6 months only! What to do???

Your pharmacy guy is a crook! All medications used in the treatment of hair loss must be taken for the rest of your life if you want to keep your hair. I've never heard of Medigro.
Finasteride 1.25 mg. daily
Avodart 0.5 mg. daily
Spironolactone 50 mg twice daily
5 mg. oral Minoxidil twice daily
Biotin 1000 mcg daily
Multi Vitamin daily

Damn, with all the stuff you put in your hair are you like a negative NW1?

I have never heard of Medigro. The best advice I can give you is if it really worked everyone would of heard of it. People have been coming up with so called cures for hair loss for centuries and 99% have never served any benifit at all except drain your bank account. If you are looking to control hair loss the 2 most effective treatments are Propecia (finasteride) and Rogiane (minoxidil). There are some supplements that will have some benifit such as Biotin and a good shampoo is Nizoral. None of these treatments correct the problem they just control further hair loss. If you are looking for more hair than you need to look into Hair Transplantation.
I am employed as the patient coordinator and office manager for Chicago Hair Transplant Clinic. Feel free to ask me any questions.
