Accutane & Hair Loss - Suggestions

So, I'm only on day 5 of Accutane, but I just noticed a day or so ago that my hair is shedding more than normal. I'm freaking out a little bit--I have very fine hair, but I've always had a lot of it. I'd like to keep it that way!

Is there any harm in taking Biotin and a B vitamin supplement while on Accutane?

Can any of you recommend some shampoos or hair products that decrease hair loss?

seriously, if it's happening on day 5, it might keep happening!

i'd keep a close eye on it, and for sure add a vit B complex daily.

that's the ONE side effect of accutane I could not handle and would have stopped right away if I saw (apparently it's about 10% of people)

make sure to get high quality conditioner, as in nothing from a pharmacy, and massage into your head really well, then leave it in for a good 10 minutes before rinsing.
