... and didn't experience any side effects except dry lips. My dosage was increased to 20mg twice a day and now two weeks into it I have started to experience much more hair loss than normal. Every time I touch my hair it seems like a few strands come out. I called my derm and he told me to stop taking it until he sees me for my 30 day appt in a few days. I am worried that this is permanent and I will continue losing more hair but I also don't want to have to stop taking the medicine although the only thing worse to me than bad skin would be losing my hair. Could the increased dosage be too much for me?
