In this video, Dr. Nilofer Farjo, ISHRS Vice President interviewed Dr. Vikram Jayaprakash on the topic of treatments for hair loss in men, the personal regime for starting patients on prescription medication and the effect of testosterone injections on hair loss
Unfortunately, the internet messages to patients focus on surgical treatments and less so on medications. They explored some of the issues around prescribing in patients and importantly Dr. Jayaprakash explains his approach in patients taking exogenous testosterone. He is seeing an increase in patients using testosterone around the “andropause” as well as younger men using it as part of their fitness and muscle building regime, and in those patients, he modifies his medication dosing. His retrospective study was presented at last year’s ISHRS World Congress.
