: : My hair has thinned noticeably in the last week and I'm sure it's related to my new med Lamictal. Question is will it reverse if I discontinue it. Also what supplements will help? I take Biotin but not sure about a good dose and zinc. Would selenium help?
: Good chance it will reverse when you withdraw although it may take some time.
I too have drug induced hairloss. It is from this drug accutane I took. It was one of the side effects if the drug. It has also still persisted even afer 10 months off the drug. I dunno how long this will last but it is very scarey cuz it still sheds. I think the hairloss will stop when the drug completely leaves your system and that will take a long time--marianna
