  1. This product is not recommended by FDA. Drugs can be ruined your life.

  2. Allergy pills can also cause hair loss. It sucks because I recently became allergic to cats, so I have to take allergy pills every day, and they all have hair loss as a possible side effect. I try to take the least amount of meds possible to avoid any more hair loss than I already have.

  3. I can relate to this, I’m taking Aleve for Arthritis pain, then one day noticed my eye brows were missing, then under arm and pubic hair getting thinned out. I’m starting to look like a 10 year old Yul Brynner.
