    Hi,
    New hear, have had hair loss for the past 15+ years but i had such thick hair that i wasnt bothered but now its thinned a lot and i am trying to control it. I recently saw a derm who suggested viviscal. Wondering if anyone here has tried it and has any feedback. I believe the dr thought it was CTE with Androgenetic Alopecia? Sorry i am just learning these terms.
    Thanks

    I've tried it and I don't really think it is any better than a good hair skin and nails supplement. I didn't experience miracles or anything like the informercials seem to promise, it did make my skin break out a bit overall it is worth a try and can't hurt.

    I've used it and have stopped coz I'm pregnant. It helped slow down my hair fall and made hair grow where it had stopped but like hairtothere said i didn't experience miracles either and I broke out for months on end but after 6 months my skin settled. I will be taking again once I stop breastfeeding.

    Weight gain you should be fine but you may have some breakouts

    I agree with hairtothere. I had no break outs at all, but it did make my scalp more greasy.

    I've been pretty religious about it, but I can't say it's made any difference.
