Does your hair look any different though? I've been shedding now for 10 and a half months and my hair is still thick and does't look any different. I'm still debating whether its worth treating with rogaine.  

 

I shed A LOT due to rogaine in the first two months. My hair is still thick to other people but I'm sure if I keep shedding at this rate with no significant regrowth, I'll go bald.  My hairline has thinned out but grew back a lot too so i don't know what to think of it. I have a bit of scalp showing now after rogaine shed.

Wow do you actually? Maybe rogaine isn't worth the risk then. I think i might just start megadosing biotin, like 10mg daily

I think people who said Biotin worked are those whose TE recovered on its own.

How long have you been shedding sunsetblvd?

10 and a half months. It really sucks. When you take biotin make sure you drink a lot of water as it can't absorb unless you do.

It does suck. Instead of spending money on supplements, I'd rather just wait it out. I don't believe in colon cleansing or liver cleansing pills. I dont believe in cutting out healthy food just because i overdosed vitamin A.

Do you have other sides from Accutane?

Yeah maybe that's a better way to look at. Aside from hair loss and I also have joint/muscle pain.

Approaching the 16th month of losing hair due to Accutane. Have been on Rogaine 5% for 6 months. I don't shed a lot now but hair seems to be thinner :(

How's everyones hair loss going? i lost about hmmm 30 hairs in the shower last night. But yesterday i lost none on my pillow and only 7-10 on my pillow last night. Hair is noticeably thinner to ME. Do you guy's think i have more chance of perminent loss seens as i started loosing mine 5 weeks after tane? I'm still not sure if it's down to tane or not, i mean my hair is ever so slightly curlier and is dryer, but i still think i may be down to illness/stress!!

 

This is not a big thing that you lost 30 hairs after shower.. Don't worry because every person lost a 50-100 hairs in a day... It is approved by FDA medical agency of US government... 


Laser for Acne treatment is the best and permanent solution for it. *Mod edit - removed URL link - Please see Board Rules*

Its now been 1 year and 3 months since my post-tane hair shedding began and I'm happy to say my shedding has pretty much stopped at this point. I definitely still lose a few here and there but it's nowhere near the level it used to be. At my worst I was losing 50-100 hairs in the shower every morning! This morning I think I saw like 2 or 3 hairs stuck to the tub, so a pretty big improvement. Although my hair is still relatively thick, I do hope to grow back what I lost. Hope everyone else dealing with this bs sees some improvement as well :)

I have been suffered from the hair thinning problems from the last few months. I have tried the Accutane and I really got my hair start growing in a regular pattern, But after some time it start loosing my hair and also the bad effects on my hair also. I have consult with the hair expert regarding this and He suggested to do hair transplant treatment for best results.

I have really depressed also last few days back, when I saw some hair falls in my bed when i wake up. I noticed that the hair loss is starting from the few days back. I have been propecia in a daily routine nearly 10-20 mg a day. But It is also some bad effect on the hair growth and I feels really depressed. I discuss this problems with the hair surgeon and He suggested me to take the Accutane, now I am using this and I really find some results.
