I'm starting to see myself as the steriod lady..or the lady who just keeps coming back! LOL :lol: Well, since I'm taking a break from Rogaine until I'm cleared by the cardiologist, my derma is convinced that the steriod shot must have helped since I saw a decrease in the shedding...even if it lasted only a week (bc now it's back full blown). He thinks the dose might have been very minimal, since he says it was in fact a VERY small dose and a slow release. He stopped everything until I get cleared by the cardio BUT he wanted me to try the topical steriod "drops" in the mean time. Has anyone tried these? TIA!!
