I have recently started taking 50 mg a day of Spironolactone. I started in mid-August. I have not had a regular period since then. I was a week late one time and the other 2 times have been every 2 weeks. At the same time I started Spironolactone my integrative nurser practitioner changed the amount and kind of progesterone cream I was taking. Now fast forward to the beginning of this month (Oct.) I started going to a new intergrative doctor. I really like him. I have a lot of bothersome symptoms, one them happens to be hair loss. Anyway he put me on something for my adrenals (which are not in good shape) and something to clear yeast out of my system. In just 2 weeks my hair did a turnaround. I could tell it was getting better before that. But it started growing again. Now I can tell I have some new growth up front (where most my hair loss is) and my part is tightening up. My family can tell a difference. And I feel better physically and mentally. I am just trying to figure out what helped it. My cousin does hair and said the regrowth looks 2 months old which would point to the Spironolactone. But I thought Spironolactone did not make hair grow. I thought it just blocked the dht so more doesn't fall out. What could making my hair grow. And could it literally grow that fast in 2 weeks? Maybe it was improving all along since Spironolactone and I just could tell it until it got long enough. But I'm scared to death that the doctor will take me off the Spironolactone because of my messed up cycle. And I have to say I'm not thrilled at the thought of having a period every 2 weeks. But it is wonderful having my hair grow again. I just can't tell you He is going to test my hormones next week to see if he can figure out why my cycle is off. For those of you who take Spironolactone do you plan on taking it long term? I just wish I knew what exactly if helping my hair. The thought of stoping Spironolactone and it falling out again makes me so unhappy. Sorry this is so long. But maybe someone else may be able to help me. Thanks!
