I started Saw Palmetto not quite three weeks ago, at 160 mcg per day. I didn't have any adverse side effects, so about a week ago I upped my dose to the 'standard' 320 mcg per day. Now, for the past few days, I've had a dramatically increased shed (at least 2x as much loss). Is it normal to have an increased shed when starting an anti-androgen like Saw Palmetto or Spironolactone? Or is it more likely that the normal dose is just too high for me and my body/hair don't like it? I don't want to reduce my dose again if this will pass, but I also don't want to go through many more days of this increased shed, because it's just awful. Scarf/hat central all week.
