View Full Version : Stopped Spiro - Shedding - Can I still Maintain my hair?

Dear Dr Redmond,
I stopped taking spiro 200mg two months ago, I had taken it for 16months and was happy with my hair, plus I was having some undesirable side effects. My shed whilst on spiro was approx 30-40 in my daily shower. From the day I stopped my shed has been creeping up and is now about 100 in my daily shower. My question is, is it still possible to maintain my hair and this shed is just a withdrawal shed? Or, is it the case that if I was going to be one of the lucky ones and maintain my hair without the spiro I wouldn't see any shed at all?
Many Thanks
