Relax about it, because I think I got myself more worried than I needed to be. (For sure) -L

I am presently taking 300 mg twice a day and working up to 400 mg twice a day; in the past I have been on 400 mg twice a day...
there has been no hair loss other than the normal hair loss one would espect...
you know, the hair that comes out in the brush normally each day... that sort of thing...

I have an acquaintance who is on no medication whatever and refuses to consider medication for any reason... she could be dying of pain and would not take an aspirin, you know the type?
She loses so much hair on a daily basis that I expect her to be bald by the end of any given week. It is nothing unusual to go to her house and see the bath tub drain full of hair after her morning shower and the basin full of hair after she has styled her hair in the morning...
not sure what HER problem is... I am the one using the med that has the supposed hair-loss factor...
I keep suggesting that she should check into it...

As has been said by Rainy and Stresser, follow the slow titration and listen to your body for the timetable and you will be all right...
it is the fast track that causes the problems with hair loss and vision and the rest of it...

we want everything yesterday in this society...
take it slowly and carefully and wait for results...
good luck
