I have just started elmiron. I am to take it two times for the first month, then three times after that. My hair is pretty hang thin. its shoulder length, but if you wrap your thumb and index finger around all my hair (like if u were making a pony tail), the circle made from your thumb and finger is only the circumference of a nickel. no lie. I am 21. my dad has super thin hair too. my grandma does too, and so did her mom. Am I more likely to lose hair? I use burts bees shampoo and conditioner. its all natural and no surfaces. I dont own a blow dryer or any heated hair styling tools. I never brush it or comb it until it dries on its own. If I did lose hair, would rogaine make it grow back? if you take elmiron and your hair thinned, what did you do?
Hi Blue London, I have had the same problem as I have had IC for many years & have been on Elmiron since 1999. My hairdresser told me to buy a shampoo that makes your hair seem thicker. Pantene. Are you in the USA or England? I only wash my hair twice a week, figuring that the less wash it, the less it will fall out. Has the Elmiron helped? Be positive. Tommy's nana
