I have been on Pentassa for about 5 years. My hair has gotten very thin. Does anyone have any suggestions as to restoring the hair?

I have thinning hair too, I currently take folic acid, biotin and flaxseed oil to try and combat it... I hear vitamin E helps as well (those are in terms of supplements). Shampoo wise I think Nioxxin is for thinning hair, I have one from Kerastase that helps as well. With haircuts, more layers make it look like your hair is thicker, as well as having a bit shorter of hair in general. If you can tolerate it, foods like avocado and salmon have lots of healthy fats that will help your hair as well... good luck!!

400 mcg to 800 mcg of folic acid, but no more than that.
