The medicine has been approved for use by dermatologists, but not by other doctors. Before you buy androcur, ask a doctor if you are allowed to take this or any other medicine without his approval. Certain medicines have been known to cause severe side effects. So, you will have to ask your physician and pharmacist first about the medicine that you intend to take.
The mechanism of action of androcur is not well understood. This is one reason why the manufacturers of androcur do not state the mechanism of action of androcur. One of the medications used in the therapy is the anti-androgen called cyproterone acetate. Cyproterone acetate blocks the formation of androgens.
It has been found out that androgens are converted into dihydrotestosterone (DHT) after the intake of androcur. DHT is a harmful hormone that has been found to increase male pattern baldness and causes hair loss in many men. But, there is no proof that androgens are the direct cause of alopecia areata. Because of this reason, the manufacturers of androcur add an active ingredient called albumin in the medicine to counter act the effects of androgens on the scalp.
When taking medicines used in the therapy for hair restoration, you may have to take them several times a day. However, this regimen varies from person to person. Before buying androcur, make sure that it is suitable for you because it has various formulations. There are also some precautions that you need to know before using it. Before using androcur, you should consult your physician. He can give you advice on using medicines used in the right doses and composition.
People who suffer from benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH), prostate cancer, benign melanoma and benign prostatic hyperhidrosis (BPHH) are advised not to use androcur. If the doctor determines that your condition is treatable with low doses of androcur, he will ask you to use a lower quantity of the medicine so that the treatment can be effectively managed. People who have a history of BPHH and prostate cancer should not take a dose above 200 mg/day. If the doctor determines that you need a higher dose of androcur, he will tell you to use it under the supervision of a qualified professional.
Before administering androcur, the dosage of the medicine needs to be decided. If you are pregnant, you are required to consult your OB-GYN or physician. When deciding to use it, the dosage should be decided based on body weight. For long term treatment, you are required to use a regular dose of androcur every day. Long-term treatments with high doses of androcur may cause severe hair loss and other side effects such as dizziness, headaches, dry mouth, sweating, and skin rash.
When the doctor decides to administer androcur for BPHH, he will first measure your blood pressure and also check for any urinary tract disorders such as infections or bladder disorders. The doctor will administer the androcur by checking the skin of the patient before proceeding. You may experience some burning sensation and you may feel some discomfort after the medication has been applied. You will then be asked to put on a gown and stay in the hospital for observation for 15 minutes. The dosage of androcur will be increased gradually until you achieve the right dosage.
Before you stop taking androcur, tell your doctor if you are allergic to the medicines. Some patients may experience some complications after stopping the medicines. If you experience these symptoms, talk to your doctor or pharmacist.
When the doctors assess the symptoms, he will prescribe a medicine called trimethoprim-sulfamethoxazole for the treatment of BPHH. Then your doctor will ask you to get injections every four weeks. The injections of androcur may cause side effects like fatigue, skin irritation and dry mouth. Therefore, before administering androcur for BPHH, tell your doctor about all the side effects that you might encounter.
