I have had hair loss since May of this year which I think was due to Prednisolone and it is now falling out very slightly.  It also appears to be growing back as I have lots of spikes everywhere and it is starting to look "buffy" on top.
Unfortunately it isn't filling in completely though as you can still see a lot of my scalp at the front.  I was just wondering if anyone had full regrowth or is this as good as it will get?!

same here! I was on prednisone Aug / Sept and I am losing it by the clumps! I read online that a few months after a illness it is normal to lose hair. So I am hoping it quits soon! I have all the little spikes every where too, a least it is growing back :)

Hey Krusty1,
No, I'm sure you'll have full regrowth, perhaps it was just more noticeable at the front (that's where I lost the most hair) and sounds like the hairloss has slowed down so it'll probably stop completely very soon. I gradually noticed the short regrowth getting more and more noticeable and I've completely regained my hair, possibly a bit thinner than previously but I'm really happy with it now...
