Hair loss from accutane

by Kay

I've been off Acutane for 8 months now and I still seem to be experiencing hair loss. What should I do? It's effecting my self esteem!

Yvette's reply: Hair loss from using Accutane is not uncommon. There are a few things you can try.

-You could try taking zinc. A deficiency in this mineral can lead to hair loss.
-Avoid stress.
-Determine with your doctor if you have any hormonal imbalances.
-Discuss with your dermatologist about surgical hair restoration and if it's necessary.
