25, Chinese male here. Ok, I was on accutane at the very beginning of February (40 mg) for like a month and a half (maybe a week less)...and quit because of the back pain. Being on a lower dosage and on such a short period, my side effects, other than the back pain, weren't too bad, but I didn't get hair loss while on accutane nor post-accutane. They were: - severe on and off back pain - dry lips/mouth - lower sex drive - a small patch of eczema on my right arm All the listed side effects completely went away within a few weeks after I stopped accutane. As for my hair, I didn't suffer any hair loss nor did my hair ever get frizzy during accutane. Out of paranoia and just to be sure, I even check my tub for hair loss every time I shower. During accutane and post-accutane until 3 weeks ago, there was no hair loss. After I shower, on average, there would be only about 5 strands of hair, which is completely normal. And hair wouldn't fall out if I run my hands through my hair. Ok, fast forward... about 3 weeks ago, I took this herbal tea (from an Asian herbal store) that was supposed to detox your body for about a week. So 2 days after I took the herbal tea, I got a fever and started having constant diarrhea, which I assumed was normal, since it is supposed to detox your body after all, and I had a very poor diet prior to that, as in I constantly ate spicy, fried and greasy food all the time. But check this out, along with the fever and diarrhea, I started shedding a lot of hair in the shower...like the first week within taking herbal tea, I was shedding like around 50 strands of hair every time in the shower and hair would easily fall out when I ran my hands through my hair! And my hair is frizzy now! Also, my sex drive is slightly lower and my lips mouth are constantly dry. I stopped taking the tea about 2 weeks ago, my fever lasted for about 4 days, the diarrhea lasted about a week. Right now, my mouth and lips still feel dry a lot, my sex drive, while not significantly lower and not like it was when I was on accutane, is lower enough to be noticeable. But my hair is still slightly shedding and still frizzy. Like although not as bad as the first week, I'm now losing around 15-20 strands of hair every time in the shower and hair sometimes falls out when I run my hands through it, although not as bad as the first week. I've been taking b-vitamins and using a conditioner (something I never needed) the last week. The people at the shop said the only possible side effect to the herbal tea was some very mild diarrhea. I did go to the doctor when I had a fever and diarrhea, and she believed it was this infection in the stomach (I don't remember the name), but the only needed treatment was rest and lay off solid foods until I got better...which was the case. However, when I told her about the hair shedding, she played it off like it was nothing and pretty much ruled out any possibility of it having to do with the herbal tea...which I think is BS, it CAN'T be a coincidence lol. Keep in mind I am a broke ass college student and as for work, I have a home business, so I don't have insurance and can't go to a pharmacist/doctor every time I need to. Any input would be appreciated.
