Anybody else out there experimenting with antihistamines ? Since Debris’s post (in this forum back in March) about reduced shedding while on antihistamines I’ve been using Lorastyne (Loratadine) 10mg daily. When washing my hair I’ve noticed about an 80% reduction in hair shedding. This took about 3 weeks to kick in but has been sustained for about 4 months now. I have not changed any other medication or dietary regimes in this period (only other med is 2.5mg Proscar daily for several years now).
I’m curios as to whether anybody else is getting a result from antihistamines after reading Debris’s post. It has been a psychological boost to see significantly less hair going down the drain every time I wash my hair. Whether this translates into a fuller looking head of hair in the future remains to be seen.
As well, I was hoping some of the more knowledgeable guys in this forum might be able to advise on a couple of things :
Even though reduced shedding has been in effect for about 4 months now do you think I’m just postponing the inevitable and may be heading towards a major shedding event somewhere soon down the track ?
If antihistamines can have the effect of maintaining a reduced level of shedding should I be regularly rotating different types of antihistamines to avoid resistance ?
Thanks for any feedback or advice. I know this probably isn’t the right forum but it is the one where I read Debris’s original post about antihistamines
