Questions to the study
Does the hair grow back? I have been on Jardiance for 9 months and have lost about 1/2 of what used to be very thick hair. The hair loss is slowing greatly, but is the lost hair gone forever? Also, do I read the results correctly and can I assume there is 0% loss after 12 months?
I have had 2 Prolia injections - one in Feb. 2017 and one in Aug. 2017. I have noticed considerable hair loss. Will this hair loss be permanent? If not, how long will it take for the hair to grow back. I do not plan on having any more Prolia injections.
After 4 months of being on Lyrica with internal shingles, my hair has been slowly falling out by the strands over the last month. Does this hair grow back after discontinuing Lyrica and getting over the bad bad of shingles?
