I have been taking this medication for 3 weeks now and I am losing so I am thrilled. I do have a concern as I am losing my hair and was wondering if anyone else experienced the same thing? Also, I do NOT have extra energy as most folks do, did everyone else not have increased energy?

Yes I have noticed some hair loss in the first few weeks but after 3 mos on it that seems to have gone away
As for energy I see very little increase in energy if I sit around but if I am cleaning or moving a lot I do see difference and it gets me going hope this helps

I have lost a decent amount of hair and I'm starting to get really worried and think I will have to stop taking it. I can't keep losing hair! Can I ask if the hair loss ever went away for you? And about the energy it actually gave me more energy when I would take them 3 times a day(25mg) The extended release didn't though.
