Considering Accutane, but concerned about hair loss.

Recommended Posts

I am going to the dermatologist tomorrow to discuss Accutane, but I am absolutely PETRIFIED because of the potential for hair loss.

I have thick hair now, and good genes in terms of hair in my family, but how great is the risk that I will actually suffer from hair loss/thinning?

Honestly, I don't even care, as long as its not noticeable (aka wow that guy is going bald).

I am at my wits end with topical treatments and antibiotics, which just don't seem to do the trick.

Thanks all. Hopefully this can put my mind at ease!

I was on it for 6months on the maximum dose, and prior to accutane had very think hair. I have a receeding hair line already and im 17 O.O

But accutane had no effect whatsoever on it, i dont think ive ever seen anyone mention that side effect so i can only assume it aint that common.

Hope that helps a little!
