Hair supplements

Recommended Posts

I'm in my 5th month of Accutane and am experiencing some hair shedding, which I know is pretty normal. I was wondering if there were any supplements or treatments I could use to prevent this from worsening?

Thank you. =]

Hey DB!

How are you?? Havent seen you around for a while

About hair supplements - my derm had recommended Biotin 5000mcg...make sure its not a lower concentration than that.

besides that, keep your hair moisturized (kerastase products are great) and make sure you're getting enough iron

Good luck!

Sounds crazy, but there are prenatal vitamins out there safe to take while on accutane and won't hurt or make your acne worse. Ask your derm for potential side effects first, and then check out a local health/supplement store and ask what they suggest.

I take them, they are good for all types of hair/skin/nail health issues.
