Alocutan Forte, male pattern baldness treatment spray, androgenetic alopecia, Alocutan Forte 50 mg / ml cutaneous spray, solution 60 ml
Alocutan Forte 50 mg / ml is indicated for the treatment of male pattern baldness (androgenetic alopecia).
Alocutan Forte, male pattern baldness treatment spray, androgenetic alopecia Indications
The drug Alocutan Forte is used in the treatment of male pattern baldness (androgenetic alopecia) in the tonsure area with a diameter of 3 to 10 cm of the scalp in men aged 18 to 49 years.
Treatment with Alocutan Forte stimulates hair growth and counteracts the progression of androgenetic alopecia. The therapeutic effect may differ from patient to patient and cannot be predicted. The onset of androgenetic alopecia in men is characterized by a receding hairline on the forehead and temples with the formation of the so-called bends. Thereafter, hair loss at the top of the head (in the tonsure area) increases.
Always use this medicine exactly as described in the package leaflet or as directed by your doctor or pharmacist. Check with your doctor or pharmacist if you are not sure.
Recommended Alocutan Forte, male pattern baldness treatment spray, androgenetic alopecia dose
A dose of 1 ml of Alocutan Forte should be applied to the affected area of the scalp twice a day (morning and evening). The daily dose of 2 ml should not be exceeded, regardless of the size of the skin area affected by the lesions.
Method of administration
Cutaneous (scalp) use. Each pack of Alocutan Forte contains two different applicators for the spray pump:
a pre-mounted applicator for use on large surfaces,
a separate applicator with an extended tip for small areas.
Both applicators can be interchanged by detaching one applicator and replacing it with the other. For a single dose of 1 ml of the solution, 6 sprays are required.
Instructions for use / application
The solution is sprayed directly onto the scalp in the area of baldness. To do this, press the pump down six times.
Each time you press the pump, spread the liquid with your fingertips on the affected area, thus avoiding inhaling the spray mist.
Alocutan Forte should be applied to the dry scalp (tonsure area). Alocutan Forte should not be used on other parts of the body.
Hands should be washed thoroughly after applying Alocutan Forte to prevent accidental contact with mucous membranes and eyes.
After applying Alocutan Forte, you can style your hair as usual.
However, the scalp should not be moistened for about 4 hours. This prevents the Alocutan Forte from being washed out.
Duration of treatment
The onset and degree of hair regrowth vary from patient to patient. For the effects to be visible, the usual treatment is twice daily dosing for 2 to 4 months. To maintain the effect, it is recommended to continue using it twice daily without interruption. The use of Alocutan Forte in a larger amount and more often does not lead to better results. There is sufficient clinical experience on the possible therapeutic effect with treatment for up to 1 year. If there is no improvement after 4 months, treatment should be discontinued. Information on increased hair loss.
When treating hair follicles with the active ingredient minoxidil, the resting (telogen) phase in the hair growth cycle is shortened and the transition to the growth (anagen) phase is faster. This stimulates the growth of new hair, causing old, inactive hair to fall out. Hence, initially there is a feeling of increased hair loss. In some patients, this reaction is observed for two to six weeks after starting treatment with the active substance minoxidil. However, don't be alarmed as this reaction is related to hair regrowth. This effect wears off within a few weeks and may be the first sign of minoxidil effect.
If you have the impression that the effect of Alocutan Forte is too strong or too weak, consult your doctor or pharmacist.
Do not use Alocutan Forte:
- if you are allergic to minoxidil or any of the other ingredients of this medicine
- in women due to isolated cases of disturbing, reversible growth of facial hair during treatment;
- if you are using other medicines for the scalp;
- if you experience sudden and uneven hair loss.
