Hair loss advice

Postby StephenPeachey » Wed Aug 15, 2018 10:07 pm

Hi all

Just wondering if any one out there has any advice regarding hair loss. I'm now one year post transplant and still on quite a high dose of Adoport 8mg twice a day, my hairs getting quite threadbare, just wondering if any of you out there have experienced the same and could recommend anything. Apart from that everything's going well .

Take care everyone

It's a common concern. I'd suggest searching the forum as there have been several previous threads.

I lost tons of hair and it went very thin, then it bounced back and has been way too thick for many years. But I'm on ciclosporin, which causes excess hair growth, so people these days will have a different pattern.

Glad to hear all is well otherwise.
