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.

Hi everyone,

 

I am a 24 yr old female. I have been on accutane (40mg/day) since December and noticed hair loss within the first month. About 2 weeks after starting, I felt a burning/itching sensation where my hairline starts, but it went away and I hoped that would be the end of it. To date, my hairline has receded considerably and my hair is extremely thin. I shed hair constantly. My hair was already very thin to begin with, so it is pretty noticeable. I am so scared that my hair loss will only get worse, especially since people shed even more once they go off the medication. 

 

To those of you who said you lowered your dose, did you notice a difference in thinning/shedding? And to those of you who have been off accutane for a few months, have you noticed any regrowth or at least stopped shedding as much or completely? Also, did taking vitamins or supplements help? If so, which would you recommend? (I am currently taking Biotin but I don't know how much that really helps.)
