I'm a 37yr old female and have lost about 50% of my hair. I haven't read anything about the use of ciclopirox helping prevent hair loss but my dermatologist gave me a prescription for it. Does anyone know how well it works for this?
How effective is ciclopirox 1% for preventing Hair Loss?

I have heard of Ciclopirox (an anti-fungal medication) being used to treat seborrheic dermatitis but not alopecia (hair loss). You should direct your question to the prescriber.
