Chronic Telogen Effluvium and Minoxidil



I've been experiencing hair shedding for 9 years and recently I got diagnosed with Chronic Telogen Effluvium. My doctor didn't draw out a biopsy but he examined my scalp closely under a microscope. He also looked at my blood test, ferritin levels and thyroid tests. All within a normal range. He prescribed Ferroglobin, Perfectil and Minoxidil. Now I'm a bit apprehensive towards using Minoxidil as it should be applied for the rest of a person's life. Anybody has any experience with Chronic TE and Minoxidil?


Not experienced it but have read about success stories. PRP appears to work well for women and corticosteroids which I reckon are better than the supplements you are taking.
Minoxidil is worth considering as an option the other treatments do not work.

If you see improvements using these meds you could probably rule out a lot of causes and concentrate on which meds you are prepared to stick with.
