Hope this helps.

I'm seeing my endo on Wednesday, so if he doesn't have any other ideas what might be causing it, will see if he thinks switching to Levoxyl might help. What's to lose? BARLEYPOP, I would love the address for the hair loss website. Both my 91-yr-old mother and 60-yr-old sister have thick, thick hair. This thin thing is really beginning to get to me.

I had lost all of my side-swept bangs that were extremely thick and my most of my hair loss was around the front of my face so my forehead was getting bigger and bigger and the sides of my hair line had receded so badly that I started wearing what I thought was cute little hair sashes and hats. I found myself the center of a couple of bad jokes, though and so then became rather self-councious.
Initally years back, I was on Nadalol, which caused hair loss/hair thinning for months before I fifgured it out and had my Dr switch me to Kerlone. I've been fine on Kerlone for years. Now that I cant take Kerlone anymore, and am having the same hair loss issues from the nadalol, I have decided I'm stopping taking these drugs altogether and weening off. Down to 1/8 pill of betaxolol / day.
However, a lot of the hair loss has to do with your hormone levels and thyroid. My hair grew back when I started taking Kelp (iodine) supplements and prenatal vitamins and I grew a ton of hair when I did that. Iodine helps to maintain a balance in your thyroid. I know this is a common thing after pregnancy but you can reduce the ammount of hair that you shed by taking supplements.
Ive tried all types of conditioning and even started taking my prenatal vitamins again, but nothing is working.

Best thing to do, GET IT REMOVED ASAP!!
I saw different doctors and in the end was put on 4 mg folic acid (3 b/c I get one from prenatal vitamin), B6 and B12 vitamins, baby aspirin (for blood clotting disorders associated with MTHFR and ANA though my antilipoids were normal). Omega 3 for development of baby and more recently magnesium b/c of heart palpitations from pregnancy. Heparin was mentioned to me as next possible step if I didn't get pregnant next try.
So far I noticed that I do seem to be having less seizures so I guess thats the part that really matters but I am also very queasy, I lose my train of thought (i did that a lot before thought too), and slightly at a loss for words a lot of the time. For example the other day I was trying to tell my friend something about six flags but all I could get out was "you know...that fun place..." luckily he knew what I meant or I'd go mental!
The doctor told me this was fine, just to be sure I was still taking my prenatal vitamins, and to eat when I could and make sure what I did get was good in nutritional value. Hope this helps!
