Customer Question

I'm looking for a supplement that will stop my hair loss and help to regrow my hair. The product I've used in the past HLCC doesn't seem to work. I've also been using gapabentin prescribed for scalp itch. I take a women's multivitamin for women over 50 (I'm postmenopausal). What can I take that would help to stop my hair loss and possibly grow more hair?
JA: Have you seen a doctor about this yet? Are you taking any medications the doctor should know about?
Customer: Taking gapabentin approximately 200 mgm daily prescribed by my dermatologist.
JA: Is there anything else in your medical history you would like the doctor to know?
Customer: Just high cholesterol, no major health issues.
JA: Do you know if your family has a history of heart disease? In general, how would you describe your health lately?
Customer: My father had heart disease , one heart attack at 50 and survived for another 28 years. I've not been diagnosed with having any heart issues and have a physical every year.

Supplements wise I would recommend a few things, but I'm curious, what supplements have you used so far besides doing the HLCC?
