Que: I had taken some hair growth vitamins, but now I have unwanted hair all over my face. My lab tests and hormone levels have all come back normal. My doctor prescribed Spironolactone, but that is showing major side effects. I would like to know if spearmint tea will help.
Ans: There is nothing wrong in trying herbal teas, because even if they are not effective, they will not cause any harm. The best idea would be to stick to medications that have been approved by FDA. Just because one medication did not work, does not mean that you have to give up hope. You can go to another doctor, get a second opinion and a new prescription. Spironolactone is normally used to treat high quantity of aldosterone or edema in the body, which is why you need to make sure that you use it with care.
