My hairline continues to retreat. I have been using Propecia and Minoxidil 5% for more than 6 years with some success. What do think about using additional topicals such as Spironolactone 5% and higher strength Minoxidil? Have these topicals proven to be worthwhile? Should I just accept the continued loss of my hairline?
There are mixed feelings about higher doses of minoxidil, mostly positive providing that the skin irritation and other side effects do not increase significantly. As you may know, minoxidil can drop your blood pressure and make you light headed and it is a skin irritant. Be sure that the side effects do not become a problem.
With regard to Spironolactones, see my previous blog answers here: Spironolactones
