Hey guys I need some urgent help and good information ! I have very thick hair , always have done , I started taking an oral steroid , and within 3 weeks I noticed my hair thinning and falling out , I couldn't believe it, I know the oral steroid causes an increased production on dht, what is main cause of the hair loss, I've stopped taking them now, and want to be advised if once my dht levels go back to normal, will my hair loss slow down? I know it will carry on but will it slow down? And what pct should I use from coming off the steroids , I currently have tamoxifen / novla

You shouldn't just stop taking steroids, you need to be weaned off of them, please contact your prescribing doctor. Are you taking the tamoxifen for cancer?

I've been on Tamoxifen for over a year and noticed more than normal hair loss and brittle fingernails. I went to a dematologist and she recommended Bioten Forte. It's helped and my hair loss is back to a normal range. Fingernails still break and split but not as bad as before.
