Just out of interest, how many of you guys suffered from bad adolescent acne? I know hormones can be responsible for both acne and hairloss but how strong is the link?
Personally, I was on enough accutane to kill and elephant at 16 or maybe 17. Interestingly some also believe accutane can fast forward your hair through a few cycles by shortening the anagen period? I've no idea how accurate or inaccurate that is. Accutane is a 5AR1 inhibitor unlike finasteride which is a 5AR2 inhibitor (hope I have that right) so it shouldn't have any great beneficial or detrimental effect on hair (though dutasteride blocks both). However side effects listed are excess hair or hair loss. Covering their bases there.
Sorry about going off on a tangent about accutane. Answering the first bit will suffice.
