View Full Version : Post accutane hair loss and milk thistle, please help!

May 24th, 2014, 09:03 AM
I stopped Accutane in August last year after being on it for less than a month. I started to lose hair since October 2013 and my hair is still thinning.
I had low ferritin and vit D. Now my ferritin is up to over 70 and I am still correcting my vit D. My hair is still falling out more than normal and it has thinned out A LOT!

I started the regime of milk thistle + green tea + dandelion tea today to detox my liver.
I also started to take 5mg biotin since March but people on acne.org say for post accutane hair loss I need at least 10mg/day

Has anyone tried milk thistle before? Has it helped liver detox / hair growth after taking meds especially chemo drugs?
I am at my wit's end now and feeling really really depressed because of hair loss.

Thank you xxxx

I've been drinking milk thistle tea off and on for 20 years. I think it helps to improve my overall heath so in that way it helps my hair.

Once you get your health in good condition, your hair should grow back in, maybe even thicker than ever. For me what has helped is eating NO fast food, NO soda, very little junk food and having patience. It will pay off in time.
