What drugs/meds you recently taken?
Starting taking Lamictal, Klonopin, and Wellbutrin about 3 1/2 months ago, after two years without any medication. Also went through ECT (electroconvulsive therapy), so the stress to body has been pretty severe.
My hairline hasn't moved at all, but I understand that it does not for some.
I have an appointment with my Derm in 3 weeks, and I'm sure he'll just put me on Propecia (he's not much of a diagnostician). I was just wondering if Propecia would help with non MPB hair loss, or if it is some kind of shock, make the shock worse.
It doesn't look like there are tests to diagnose the type of hair loss, so I can't decide which is riskier: waiting to take Propecia/making changes in medication and possibly losing more hair that I'll never get back (it's going fast), or starting Propecia now.
I think I'll probably do the latter, but I just wanted some input. If it is MPB, does it look like the type which would respond? Is it even possible to tell visually?
