Hi, I found this site while trying to decide if I should switch from finasteride to Spironolactone. I have been prescribes both on separate occasions and hesitated to start anything at all but have gotten desperate in the last few months. Been on finasteride for 2 months and the shedding just is horrible. No end in sight I started rapidly losing my hair a year and a half ago, soon after having a hysterectomy. I am not on hormone therapy bc I still have my ovaries. I have lost 2/3 of my hair already, and I started out with A LOT. Along with my hair loss I have been enduring many strange health issues (chronic debilitating migraines, constant nausea and inability to gain weight, fatigue and weakness, anxiety and insomnia, vision problems....) I have been to my OBGYN for testing, she sent me to a dermatologist and endocrinologist who did extensive testing, then sent me to a rheumatologist for even more testing, no answers. The only tests that were a off was low vitamin D (so I took an expensive supplement for 4 months with no changes) and a high ANA which none of my doctors seem too concerned about. I have also tried taking biotin, and collagen powder with no noticeable results. Nice to meet everyone. I have one question, can I add a before and after photo to my profile so people can see the amount of hair loss? thanks!
