Are these products used to treat acne? - ROC correction serum & Bioderma sebium global?

Not best choices: The first is overpriced hyped retinol. Bioderma has salicylic acid that may work. Both compounds have some use in some acne preparations, but if you're serious about managing acne, start with some topical benzoyl peroxide as tolerated, and ask your physician if you need something more. ...Read more

Any hypertensive meds that don't cause hair loss? Vasotec, lebatalol, diovan, bystolic (nebivolol) work but cause hair loss. Benicar doesn't reduce dystolic #.

Any hypertensive meds that don't cause hair loss? Vasotec, lebatalol, diovan, bystolic (nebivolol) work but cause hair loss. Benicar doesn't reduce dystolic #.

Unusual side effect: I have treated pts for forty years, and i can't remember that complained of hair loss after starting any of these agents. That does not mean it never happens (one lesson i've learned in medicine is never say never). Every drug has a huge list of adverse effects because each one a pt complains of in a study gets listed. Vasotec is an ace, Diovan (valsartan) & Benicar r arb's, same effects. Hair loss unlikely. ...Read more

Is there any alternative for isotetrinoin /accutane in nodular acne ?

Is there any alternative for isotetrinoin /accutane in nodular acne ?

Yes: Hello, Traditional texts speak of the failure and risk of topical methods for deeper cysts and nodules. However, new amplified approaches of topicals can predictably, and reproducibly inactivate nodular acne without accutane. A strategic approach requires a great patient/practitioner relationship.

Please explain why is dutasteride not approved by fda for hair loss treatement?

Please explain why is dutasteride not approved by fda for hair loss treatement?

No studies submitted: In order for a drug to be approved by the fda for a specific problem, the company must do clinical studies that demonstrate that the drug does what they are perporting. Unless the makers of Dutasteride do studies demonstrating it is effective to stop hair loss, it can not be marketed for that purpose.

12 years post op rny, iron 20 & vitamin d at 10. Seeing a new dr that hasn't worked with deficient gastric bypass, is 325ferrous 3x and 2000d 1x okay?

12 years post op rny, iron 20 & vitamin d at 10. Seeing a new dr that hasn't worked with deficient gastric bypass, is 325ferrous 3x and 2000d 1x okay?

Nutrition!: A gastric bypass is a very complex nutrition situation. If your physician has not dealt with it much i would suggest asking for a referral to a nutritionist or a bariatric center. That being said, the dosage of iron is fda approved treatment for iron deficiency, and the vitamin d is a reasonable amount. You have many nutrient levels that should be monitored and carefully watched! ...Read more
