I started Claravis Sept 11, 2011 and went off it February 14, 2012, so a 5 month treatment. Two weeks into treatment my hair started coming out. I was freaked out, obviously! They lowered my dose. My still continually shed though. My hair has thinned out all over. No bald spots, and thinned out more so on the right side than the left and also the back thinned more too. Anyway, the shedding slowed down a lot for a while, but the shedding started again like 2 months ago and I'm so scared! My hair was never thin before taking claravis and never ever came out like this. There's hair everywhere! All over my floor, in the shower, my hair brush, on me! 😔. Anyone else in the same boat?

I'm going to start hair skin and nail vitamin. When I use product it's not too dry but after a day it becomes dry, I guess when the product wears off, i dont know. I don't even know what the hell is normal with my hair anymore!
