How About Using Over the Counter Stuff?
Not a problem, but it doesn’t work as well (most don’t work at all). The only effective medical treatment available over the counter is Minoxidil 2% (also 5% in the USA). It is better than doing nothing, but your doctor can help you do better still.
I Have Heard About Saw Palmetto and Other Stuff on Late-Night TV. Does Any of It Work?
The truth is, no one knows. There have never been any scientific studies done on these products to show that they work. There is no harm in trying, as long as you are not missing out on the proven treatments. Unfortunately, most of these products cost more than Minoxidil and Finasteride combined.
