I'm female, age 60.
Will this help my hair loss?
Has anyone you know had luck?
Took Topirimate, gobs of hair fell out.
There are dozens and dozens of different types of hair loss. Finasteride helps just one of them - androgenetic hair loss.
Hair loss from topiramate, with massive shedding as you describe is not in keeping with androgenetic hair loss.
So if you are using it for that reason, it won't help.
Finasteride is not FDA approved for women. Post menopausal women with androgenetic hair loss will sometimes use as an "off label" indication.
Please see a dermatologist for guidance as to what is the proper diagnosis. Only then can you review treatment.
