I am starting Accutane for like the 7th time. The past 2 times I was on Accutane I noticed my hair began falling out. My derm said it was indeed because of the Accutane. I stopped the the 7th course because I lost near 50% of my density to the front of my head. I have to take Accutane again because there is no other alternative for my kind of acne. Anyway, I am going to have a hair transplant towards the front that way I don't look like I'm forever in chemo treatment. Am I going to have to wait 6 months after Accutane to have the transplant done? By then I know I wont have hair left. :(

Ask your doctor about propecia and minoxidil. I went through hair loss a year ago and I started taking propecia and putting minoxidil and it all came back within 3-4 months.

Hair transplant is really scary I wouldnt recommend you to do it unless you have tried everything else before.

What does of accutane did he prescribe? I'm considering doing low dose; 5mg/day.
