biotin to treat hair loss from taking drug Forteo for osteoporosis

I need to know if it's true that it helps offset the loss of hair some people experience(1/3 of hair some need wigs) and what are the dosages 10,000 mcs or mls plus Vit B complex and what vitamins/mineral supple ments? ## Biotin may help, but the only way to find out is for you to try it. However, you should always check with your doctor to make sure that it's safe for you to do so. You shouldn't exceed the dosage suggested by your doctor or on the product packaging. There is no proven supplement protocol that I can give you, I'm sorry, I wish there were. Vitamin E is also said to help with the health of your hair, so that could be another to try, if your doctor says it is safe for you to take. Does anyone else have any suggestions to add? ## I believe that while you are...

Supradyn (multivitamin tablets with mineral & trace elements)

What are the side effects of supradyn if consumed on a daily basis for a year? ## Well, as you have already stated, Supradyn is a multivitamin supplement, not an actual medication.

It contains: ascorbic acid 150 mg, biotin 0.25 mg, calcium pantothenate 16.3 mg, calcium phosphate 129 mg, copper sulphate 3.39 mg, dried ferrous sulphate 32.04 mg, magnesium oxide 60 mg, manganese sulphate 2.03 mg, nicotinamide 100 mg, phosphorus 25.8 mg, sodium borate 0.88 mg, sodium molybdate 0.25 mg, vitamin A 10000 iu, vitamin B1 10 mg, vitamin B12 15 mcg, vitamin B2 10 mg, vitamin B6 3 mg, vitamin D3 1000 iu...

Loss in physical interest after prolonged use of follohair

My husband is 35.... doctor prescribed him follihair for hair loss two years back for a month.... but he has been taking since widout doctors advice.... I hav noticed that in past one year he is hardly interested in physical touch.... I feel this is because of excessive intake of follihair.... can this be true ## It is very doubtful, because Follihair is just a nutritional supplement that contains a complex of vitamins and minerals that are vital to our overall health, as well as biotin to aid in hair growth and health. The NIH lists its typical side effects as possibly including nausea, and diarrhea, in some people that take it. There are, however, many medications that could cause such an issue. Does he take anything else regularly? Has his doctor checked his testosterone level?

supradyn tablet consumption

After consuming supradyn for more than a month , leg cramps reduced but noticed considerable increase in hair loss. The daily hair loss is too much . I have stopped taking supradyn for a fortnight but hair loss is continuing. Kindly advise. ## Supradyn is just a multivitamin/mineral supplement, so it should not cause hair loss. The NIH lists its typical side effects as possibly including nausea, headache, and constipation, due to its potency. Are you on any other medications? Usually, ingredients in this, such as Biotin, help reduce hair loss. How old are you?

what is dbx 13 ingredients

dbx13 what are the ingredients? ## Hi Virginia, Based on my research, DBX-13 is said to contain 11 natural ingredients that are touted for their ability to fight diabetes (by balancing blood sugar levels) without many of the harsh side effects of prescription medications. The strange part however, is that I can't find much information on it other than what is mentioned above; not even a list of the actual ingredients. Because of the lack of available information, many people on this site (including myself), feel that this product is a scam and should probably be avoided. However, I'd recommend checking out the discussion thread linked below to read about another user's personal experience falling for their gimmicks: Discuss/DBX-13-scam-261559.htm I hope this helps! ## I just...

ingredients in dbx 13

Why can't I find an ACTUAL list of ingredients in DBX 13? I'm interested in this product but I don't understand why I can't find a list of the ingredients. ## Hello, Susan! How are you? Many people have been asking about this, H86 and others ever since that email newsletter has been going out, but there is nothing to be found! I'm sorry, I know many people's hopes were falsely raised, so I know what I'm saying is very disappointing. But I have searched extensively and repeatedly in many different resources, both paid and free, that cover everything from experimental drugs to natural supplements and have been unable to find a single mention of these, whatsoever.

What is dbx 13...Answer

Not a scam! I do not know why the reference is "DBX-13," however the formulae in the "Miracles from The Vault - Anthology of Underground Cures" refers a formulae to the same statistics for "DBX-13" AS "Syntra5" TM, by Syntratech. Syntra5 is sold by Amazon but the best deal is similar to the manufacturer, but cheaper, at quick2you, savings of @ $20 (buy 2 and get one free). Now that you know the actual name, check it out. I have never been steered wrong by HSI over the last 7 years. Great info in the book above. ## I know you mentioned that HSI has never steered you wrong in the past, but I am curious to find out if you've had a chance to actually try any of their products over the past 7 years? Apparently the active ingredients contained in Syntra5 ar...

Taking biotin with metoprolol

I wanted to know if I can take biotin while taking metoprolol? I just want to make sure before I start. ## From what I've researched, Biotin can be naturally found in your body (and is produced by bacteria in your GI tract to aid in digestive functions). It also naturally occurring in many foods. Therefore, I am of the opinion that Metoprolol shouldn't negatively interact with what is already normally present in your body...Otherwise, the medication would be deemed useless for all human consumption...Lol. According to The University of Maryland Medical Center, "although there is no evidence that biotin interacts with any medication, there are some medications that may lower biotin levels."

Solution Of Hair Loss Due To Thyronorm

i am taking thyronorm 50 mcg since last 2 years my t3 t4 tsh are in range. problem is hair loss, dryness of skin and weight gain ## I'm sorry, but there really is no solution as long as you are taking this medication. There are well known side effects of it and they tend to continue. Have you consulted your doctor? They might be able to make some suggestions to help with the dry skin. Additionally, a supplement such as Biotin, if it's safe for you to take, may help slow the hair loss. Other supplements may help, as well, such as a good multivitamin. It's hard to say, some people have good luck with them and some don't. ## From starting of hypothyroid i was taking Thyroxine Sodium Tablets IP Eltroxin 100mcg monday to friday (5 Days) prescribed by doctor.

Doc Prescribed Me Tricovit Tablet For Hair Loss

I have been diagnosed with alopecia aretae . I m going thru severe hair loss. Doc prescribed me tricovit tab . Will it help me and how long it would take to protect my existing hair . ## Tricovit is just a nutritional supplement that claims to contain vitamins that will help your hair. It contains biotin, L-Cysteine and L-Methionine. However, there are no guarantees that it will actually help your hair loss and stop more from occurring. It is known that some hair loss can be caused by a deficiency in Biotin, so if that's what has caused it, supplementing it back can arrest the hair loss and help encourage new growth. But, if your hair loss has is genetic, which is usually the case with alopecia areata, there may be nothing that can be done to change it. There are cases of this, thou...

Bitozed Forte

will this tablet put on weight? can i consume it daily after lunch or dinner? will this really help in hair growth and premature hair etc? is this better than pabatab bz ? ## Hi ruhi, From what I can gather, Bitozed Forte is a multivitamin/mineral combination with Biotin and Calcium Pantothenate (Vitamin B- 5). This multivitamin shouldn't cause weight gain. Biotin is a very popular supplement for the health of the hair, skin, and nails. I've taken a similar supplement with Biotin before and it did seem to make my hair/nails grow faster and stronger. However, there is no way to know for sure how well it will work for until you try it. You can learn more about this drug on the page for Biotin Details You can learn more about this drug on the page for Pantothenic acid Details I hop...
