    Default Scared of Antibiotics, Anesthesia, Surgery, CT Scans & Cannabis - Need feedback

    Hi everyone. First post (sort of)

    I feel like antibiotics speed up hair loss and I'm afraid to take them. I took them 2 times within the last 4 months and hated it. I also am fearing/ wanting to avoid an upcoming surgery for a deviated septum - because i read that anesthesia and surgery in general can cause clumps of hair to fall out. Oh, and I avoided a CT scan for the same purpose.

    Oh and as far as cannabis, I've read that it fights THC BUT that it speeds up your shedding phase - which is bad if you are trying to hold on to your hair and not shed it (lost forever)....

    Anyone think my fears have merit or am I completely alone here?

    A little background:

    I used to be on here but lost my email/ info. Anyways, I've been suffering from hair loss since 1998 or in my late teens and am now 40. I've been on finasteride since 1999 or 2000. I also take .05 generic avodart from Canada... every other day. My doctor won't prescribe it.... zero side effects.

    My hairline is fragile. I have long hair (I'm a male) and use concealers to thicken up my hairline. Loss has been slowed down but every year I feel like there's a change in the wrong direction as I get older that concealers are starting to conceal less... Oh and I take minoxidil 5%. Nothing has stopped my loss, but it has slowed it down for 20 years - but I still can not accept it, like many who don't want to shave their head...

    I really wish there were definitive answers on medicines (including cannabis) and how they affect hairloss.

    My doctor told me "you're gonna lose your hair, get over it" when I explained to him that I do not want to go on anitibiotics without a definitive diagnosis (in my case a nasal issue that turned out to NOT be an infection...) Researchers don't seem to care, but I know that tons of us would like to know exactly the things out there that will speed up our hair loss...

I suffered from joint pain for a long time until I tried cannabis, which my friend ordered at online-dispensary.net. At that point, I was amazed at how quickly I was able to get rid of the pain that I hadn't been able to get rid of years.
    My friend was just looking for this information. Thanks

    I think you should not be scared of these things because if they are used at the right time and by specialists in the field, then nothing negative can happen. Especially with cannabis, you don't have to be scared in general because nothing bad is done if you consume it in balanced doses or used in consumer products. For example, there is Brainstorm Magic Boom Bar chocolate from https://getkush.io/product/brainstorm-boom-psilocybin/ that is vibing with psilocybin and is extremely tasty, without harming the body, which is an important aspect, so you could consume them without any worries
