Has anyone tried Cepharanthine, an approved medicine from Japan for alopecia?

Hi Everyone,

Has anyone heard of or better yet tried Cepharanthine to treat their hair loss?  I've been reading a lot about Cepharanthine lately and it seems to be very popular in Japan but most people outside of Japan have not heard of it.  Its approved by the Japanese ministry of health to treat alopecia. 

It's available to order online without needing a prescription and it looks really good, but I just wanted to see if anyone has had any firsthand experience with it?

Please let me know :)

it's curious how little information turns up about it on google. I wonder if a person could even acquire this in north america

I came across this commercial source after a bit of googling. interesting that it's affiliated with LDN which is another drug people have attempted to use for AA


Really interesting, I didn't know that people also use LDN to treat alopecia?

Has anyone ever had a successful treatment with ldn?

questionable results and anecdotal evidence. nothing concrete. 

Thanks so much for all your help!  I also found this article about it in case anyone is interested in more details

It sounds legit. Is it a for of ldn?

I'm not sure if I understand your question.  The article is about Cepharanthine.  There is a company called BuyLDN that has both Cepharanthine and LDN available for order.
