Not to upset anyone at all by saying this but in your case BH, I think you may have overmedicated yourself. One of the main reasons the doctor says that treatment should start slow and simple is so that you know what is working and what is not. When you hit the problem from many different directions, you may be taking one thing that is doing you good and something else that is doing you bad but since you are taking them all at the same time, you dont know which is which. Also, although there is no doubt in my mind that many of the ladies here know ALOT more than MOST people about hair loss, treatments etc. I would still always recommend the opinion of an expert such as Dr. R or another doctor like him. I think any medication should be prescribed by a doctor that should know more than we do. And if the doctor you see doesn't, then we should keep on searching until one appears that does, because then at least you have someone to go to to discuss your concerns when you feel your situation is getting worse and a different course of action can be prepared.
