I have used propecia for several years now with limited success – no hair gain, just prevented further hair loss. I have recently came upon capiplus, which is supposedly natural alternative to propecia. Although I would like to try something new I am afraid stopping using propecia might start hair loss again. Is it possible and does it make sense to combine propecia and capiplus?
I do not know of any natural alternative to Propecia (finasteride) that works like the companies claim they do. These claims are unregulated by government authorities and as I have written many times, “It is a buyer beware market”. Capiplus is yet another saw palmetto concoction available on the market (the product also contains calcium and other vitamins that won’t stop your hair loss). See this post on saw palmetto.
You indicated Propecia has at least prevented further hair loss. That means it is working! Perhaps it isn’t working as much as you may like, but you have to understand the limitations of medication. Why do you need an alternative? You are already taking the real thing. You must also understand there is no absolute cure for hair loss and many men such as yourself will continue to buy into the promises of hair loss cure advertisements.
