Anybody have hair thinning or hair loss after taking these? I've been using for 2 years but about 6 months after starting the inhaler I noticed my hair thinning considerably. I mean it's just amazing how much it's changed and so fast! I really don't have any early baldness in my family either.

My hair is thinner, but I have hypothyroidism, too.

I know steroid or corticosteroid based medications can cause hair loss and/or hair changes and the only remedy I can think of is to start taking Biotin (it's OTC and non-toxic) 3-5mg's (or 3000-5000mcgs). Or you can see either a doctor or a nutrionist to see if they have other recommendations for you.
