See Doc to check: While biotin may help hair grow faster, it's unlikely to reverse extreme hair loss. I advise seeing a doctor to find the cause. Common causes include hypothyroidism & pcos, both associated with obesity. Neodipar and other medicines can cause hair loss as a side effect, as can iron deficiency anemia.
