Yeah, I guess that makes sense. Doctors probably don't know enough about hirsutism either. I was told it's usually middle eastern, indian, and mediterranean women who are prone to it, but who knows!
Inositol is definitely calming. Some people take it for anxiety, OCD and ADD. It used to help me sleep better at night, but at one point it stopped doing that so now I take it as soon as I wake up, and sometimes I also take myo in the afternoon. I must say that chiro is definitely more potent than myo...I even relaxed my diet a bit, and haven't really had new acne apart from a couple of small ones. I had to take 4 flights these past week, and usually my skin is a mess when I'm traveling but so far it has been surprisingly calm.
Is choline supposed to help with sleep? How much of it are you taking? Does it make you feel drowsy in the morning? When I was taking myo at night, I felt a bit drowsy in the morning.
Spiro didn't help me with hirsutism either. Hair on my head and my eyelashes shed, but I still had the excess hair in the wrong places like upper lip, chin, etc. It's just my opinion, but I think if you are getting too much hair in abnormal places (no matter what color) and it's not in your genetics, it could be considered hirsutism. It just doesn't make sense to me that if you are blonde and have a hormonal imbalance which causes hirsutism, that the hair would suddenly grow darker. Half of my face is blonde and the other half of it has black hair (including eyebrow and eyelashes.) I get the same amount of hair on both sides of my upper lip, they are just different colors.
Inositol / Choline update: 5th day. The only side effect (or any effect) I've noticed is I have been super sleepy the past few days. I am super tired in the evenings (abnormal for me) and ready for bed at 10-11. I also am having a hard time waking up in the morning, which is also pretty abnormal. It's not the worst side effect because I am still sleeping great, but I do hope it subsides within a week or two. I did read that inositol is calming. Did you experience this at all, WishClean?
