Post hair thinning on accutane?

Where on your head does your hair thin out? Is it the very top of your head or is it where you would normally get a receding hair line? I am experiencing thinning on the hair line and am wondering if thats going to grow back when I am done taking accutane?(almost finished 10 days left)

Thank you

My hair grew back, but the new growth was CURLY! My hair is normally smooth and wavy. But a couple of years later, I went through a prolonged (2 year) period of noise-induced insomnia and school stress, and I had Telogen Effluvium--I shed most of the curly hair. I don't know if there was any correlation between my Accutane use and my subsequent shedding.

I've only been on Accutane for a month, but lost a bi of hair on the hairline.
From what I've read elsewhere, it comes back.

as far as the texture of your hair changing, I've heard of that happening before. Not related to Accutane, but in cases where people were going through severe body changes(puberty, pregnancy, stress...)
