I'm on Yasmin and been on it for a year as well as used Nizoral for washing my scalp however I didn't notice any noticeble difference to my hair after using it for a year.
I have decided to try 2% monoxidil solution and been using for three weeks once a day and been very alarmed by the results. Since the second week I have started picking my shedding hair in handfulls especially at times of washing my scalp. Even though I had thinning hair before and for a considerable lenght of time it wasn't that noticeble. Now I have to deal with a bold patch on my crown.
I'm concerned that if I discontinue monoxidil my hair won't grow back or shed even more...I'm confused as to how to react to this. Does it mean that the treatment is really working or it's not suitable for me? Is monoxidil supose to cause a severe shedding?
