Hair Loss on Accutane Question

Recommended Posts

Hi there,

I'm going to be starting accutane in the next few weeks and I'm very worried about losing a lot of hair while on the treatment. Can anyone recommend anything to help combat this? Also, what were your experiences with hair loss on accutane? Thanks so much, Berry

I may start accutane soon, I am not sure. I am very worried about the side effects. I came across this web site where thousands of people talked about how accutane ruined their health for life... I don't know what to believe because my doc is telling me it's no big deal.

Anyway, if you want to reduce the chances of hairloss, i reccomend biotin (5mg a day). It comes in 5mg tablets too.

Also, my doc said that she has seen hairloss only in women and that it was mild and not permanent. I don't know if this means anything, it could just be by chance that it happened like that.

hope that helps some, good luck
