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...

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.
