Hello, My name is Carla. Without going in to a long drawn out explanation as to why I am contacting you I will get right to the point. After a demo of the liquid Qunol CoQ10 at Costco, I bought a bottle. It lasted about one month and then I went back and bought another bottle. I am a very healthy 66 yr. old woman but it seemed as though it was beneficial to continued good health. About week I noticed my hair was thinning. Not patches or clumps, but strands, a lot of them were here, there and everywhere. My husband noticed it with me too and my hair was about half the fullness it normally is. I had done nothing different in my diet. I figured it might have something to do with this CoQ10 so I started to research it beyond the benefits. Wow !!! Well, I don't have to tell you that hair loss is one of the side effects and I also had so much trouble getting to sleep. I went back to my hair stylist and she gave me a haircut that would work better for me now that my hair is so thin. It's been almost 3 weeks since I stopped taking this and my hair has not started to grow back but I am hopeful. I still see loose hair in different places but it's not as bad so I hope this will stop and I do hope I have not done damage to my overall health. I tried to get in touch with the company that markets this and they do not answer their phone, and although they say to leave a message, I am unable to do this also. This alone tells me what this company is really all about. What a scam, and I am mad at myself for falling for it as I usually don't fall for stuff like this.
My name is Kim I have been using remicade for approximately four months now and I will be visiting my hairdresser tomorrow to cut my hair short due to severe hair loss. It is beyond saving. And the texture of my hair has become very course. I have psoriatic athritis and remicade helps me to move again. My hair loss has depressed me to the fullest.
