Spironolactone has a lot of side effects. I would only use it as a last resort. It won't do anything for the hair you currently have. It may prevent additional hair from forming. You'll need electrolysis or laser to get rid of the hair you currently have.
Im meeting with my doc in a week to start testing to find out about that. I've heard it thins hair from medical reports as well as people. are those just rare cases?
