I've been on Spiro (stepping my way up to 200mg) and Rogaine for a little over a month. Also on continuous BC for a little more than 3 months. Before starting this regimine, I was shedding about 125-170 a day. The first week or two I was on Spiro and Rogaine, I didn't notice a decrease, but no increase either. By the end of two weeks, I was shedding a lot less--more like 50/day. Then, all of a sudden a week ago, the shedding started to increase! The last two days it's been back up in the 125-150 range (and today's not over yet...) My question is this... I know most people experience an increase in shed when they start these products...but how soon after you start does that happen? Right away? A few weeks later? What's weirding me out is that the shedding seemed to have slowed, but now, a month after starting Spiro/Rog it seems to be increasing. Is that normal for these products, or is it likely something else is causing the uptick in my shed? I'm just heartbroken...just when I thought maybe there was hope.
