Does Long Hair Fall Out More
Hair loss, otherwise known as alopecia, can be caused by different reasons, including damage to the hair shaft or follicles or fungal infections. There are two main types of alopecia.

Can taken a sleeping tablet every night make your hair fall out... Stillnot sleeping tablets? And can they affect your memory in the long term
Hmmmm: What kind of sleeping tablets are you taking? Sounds unlikely. I'd put my money on the other meds you've listed; the underlying insomnia (stress-related) or the sle which you listed as one of your conditions. Some sleeping pills can affect your memory, but it's generally short term. Hair loss can be from a lot of things, but sleeping pills aren't the first thing i think about. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Is it safe to take evion 400 daily for long term usage for hair fall or should I take with other vitamins supplements and should I give gap using it.
Worthless: This is vitamin E, one of the great disappointments of 20th century medicine. It was hoped that it would be a wonder antioxidant, but in the big studies, people randomized to receive big doses had no clear health benefits and somewhat increased mortality.
