I'm on Asacol 12 pills a day and it's definitely a hair loss drug. It's a bad trade off... I started taking viviscal hair growth supplement which is expensive and will switch to biotin because it's less expesnive. I feel like it's doing something. Hair is growing back but I lost about
50 percent. Also, there's the loss from the shock to the system of getting suddenly sick. three months later the hair starts shedding a lot and you lose it.
If I feel comfortable in the next two weeks, my doc said I could cut back from 12 pills to 6 pills. DocGP says the loss might lessen. I hope so.
