Hi, I've been using scalpmed for almost 4 months now but I don't see any difference. Do you think or is it safe to start using another product like provillus? Thank you.
AskDocWeb: Yes, if it hasn't been having any affect then there is no problem with discontinuing it to start using Provillus.
I've been taking %4 Minoxidil + 0.025% Tretinoin for almost two months. Not seeing a whole lot of reaction yet. Can I take the provillus with it as well?
I am a very hairy person (I have hair on my back, chest etc) except of course on my head. Will provillus increase the amount of body hair even more, or is it something that targets only the hair on people's heads?
AskDocWeb: It targets the hair on your head.
Subj: FDA approved?
Is provillus really approved by the FDA? I have read about some products that claim they are only to find they are not. I have started thinning at the crown of my head and I am 34 years old. I am looking for an all natural way to help regrow the small area that is balding and prevent any further loss of hair. I have read propecia has some negative side effects such as issues if my wife and I were trying to have a baby it may affect the sex of the baby, which is quite scary to me. Your thoughts would be appreciated.
AskDocWeb: The FDA neither approves nor disapproves of the effectiveness of herbal products. Their jurisdiction has to do with making sure the labeling is honest.
I just found out I am pregnant. I ordered provillus a few days ago. Is it safe to take while pregnant or should I return it?
AskDocWeb: No problems have been reported with using Provillus while pregnant. On the other hand it is a good idea to keep your doctor informed about any supplements you are taking while pregnant.
Subj: Provillus makes hair sticky
I am using Provillus right now but when I put it on my hair it makes it all sticky. Is there a way out of this? Is anyone else experiencing the same situation? Thanks,
Subj: Laser hair removal
I am currently undergoing laser hair removal treatments for my back fuzz, while I lose the hairs on my head. Nice irony, huh? Anyway, has there ever been any reports on Provillus counteracting the effects of body hair removal?
AskDocWeb: No, there's no interaction and no need to be concerned.
Subj: No oil to Canada
Hi I just bought Provillus and I live in Canada. Apparently Canada does not allow the oil to be delivered here, only the pills. I'm just wondering if it will still be as effective or is there no point to taking it?
AskDocWeb: You can probably substitute minoxidil for the oil. Do let us know how this works out for you.
I have been using Provillus for a few days, and have noticed a slight tachycardia and a couple of instances of a sharp pain lasting a second or two in the region of my heart. Could some of the ingredients in the Provillus liquid cause arrhythmias? I will not take something that could mess with my heart. If you feel that one or some of what's in Provillus could affect the heart, please advise me.
AskDocWeb: The saw palmetto in Provillus is known to cause chest pains in some people although it is not known if these are arrhythmias or not.
Subj: Erection problem
I've been using Provillus for 3 1/2 months and I have noticed problems with my erections. I couldn't understand why and today I finally got to a conclusion, that it has to do with me taking Provillus. It's the only pill of any kind (supplement or drug) that I'm taking. I noticed problems almost a month ago and it's getting worse. I also haven't noticed any regrow of my hair. I used to take Propecia 3 years ago and the same thing happened to me, so the doctor told me to stop taking it. It took a couple of months to all get back to normal. I hope this is the case now, because I prefer being bald that having this issue any day. It's weird that no reports have been made, maybe pharmaceutical companies have something to do with that. Who knows! Have any other reports been made?
AskDocWeb: No, not for Provillus. Erection problems have several causes. Please consider getting a checkup (urologist) to make sure you are healthy in that area.
Subj: I'm 16 and have hair loss problems
Hi, I'm 16 and I have some hair loss problems. My mother's entire family have genetic hair loss problems. I'm wondering if I should take any supplement at the age of 16 for DHT is an important hormone for kids.
AskDocWeb: No, sorry you are not old enough yet, you have to be 18. Don't mistake normal daily hair loss for problem hair loss, loosing some is natural.
Subj: Stimulate rapid hair growth?
I don't have any hair loss as such, I just want a product that can stimulate rapid hair growth permanently. Is this good for that reason or can you recommend something else that's natural?
AskDocWeb: As far as we know, there is no product on the market that can stimulate rapid hair growth permanently.
I'm only 17 years old is it safe for me to take Provillus?
AskDocWeb: It is suggested that you be legal age before taking any supplements. Once you start a hair loss product you always have to use it or loose the benefits.
I read in the ingredients that it also has PABBA in it. I have had allergic reactions to sunscreens with PABBA in it and burn badly. Will provillus give me trouble? Thanks
AskDocWeb: If PABBA gives you problems then don't take products with PABBA listed in the ingredients.
Subj: Better Business Bureau
If you enter the phone number for provillus on the Better Business Bureau national website www.bbb.org, you will see that the company has an unsatisfactory record at several BBBs due to refund problems.
AskDocWeb: We checked the BBB website to verify your comment but found nothing about refund problems. That kind of makes us wonder if you work for their competition.
Subj: Provillus and Nisim Products
I just started using Provillus. I also recently heard there are pretty good hair loss shampoo/conditioner and a gel called Nisim. Would you recommend using these simultaneously or should I stick to Provillus only? Thanks.
Provillus and Nisim Products
AskDocWeb: Yes, using a good hair loss shampoo with Provillus is a good idea.
Subj: What form does Provillus come in?
Is provillus strictly tablet or pill form and only ingested orally?
AskDocWeb: Provillus comes in both pills to take orally and a solution that contains 5% Minoxidil to be applied topically.
Subj: Difference in ingredients?
Why is there a difference recommended for men and women? And is there a significant difference in the amount of the ingredients between the two?
AskDocWeb: The ingredients needed to obtain results are different because not all the causes of hair loss are the same for men and women.
Subj: Is it normal to see shedding using a DHT inhibitor?
Hi, I have been using Provillus for a 1 1/2 months...and recently I have seen some more hair shedding on the front portion of my scalp. The hairs have a white bulb at the end. I was reading that this is normal, and that the old hairs are being pushed out and a new hairs are coming in. On top of this, I have seen new hairs coming in on my hairline as well....but my only question was if it is normal to see shedding using a DHT inhibitor product? Thanks for your time and help:)
AskDocWeb: Not sure about normal but it does seem common. Not everyone experiences it but shedding has been reported to occur in the first three months with every hair loss product on the market.
Hi, I'm getting ready to start my 2nd round of accutane in Dec. for 5 months. During the 1st round I lost 70% of my hair towards the end of the cycle. Do you think this product may stop the hair loss due to accutane? If so, should I start it now?
AskDocWeb: Sorry Melissa, we have not heard of Provillus being used to treat drug-induced hair loss.
Subj: Sexual side effects?
Hi, does provillus have any sexual side effects? Plzz reply,
AskDocWeb: In the past 17 months that we have tracked the side effects of Provillus, only one man reported sexual side effects and he admitted to having sexual side effects previously from taking Propecia.
