Hair loss and Accutane

Hair loss can happen with Accutane, though I also have some patients report back that their hair grows more and stronger while on Accutane, so it happens both ways. When you are done with your course and the Accutane is out of your system (doesn't take long!) your hair growth should return to normal. This is a short-term problem, not a long-term issue. You can also go on Propecia if you'd like - ask your prescribing physician.
