  • hair loss

    does anybody have any idea...when the hair loss will stop?

    or does anybody know the half life of elmiron?

    my family doc..says the half life a good indicator of how long it takes for it to get out of our body..he tried to look it up in his little palm pilot looking thing..but couldnt find it

    its been 37 days
    and its still falling out

    37 days doesnt seem like alot...but its really over 5 weeks
    Quit ELMIRON due to hair loss
    Cystoprotek ROCKS!

    I have that problem too !!

    I have the hair loss problem too, it comes out in handfuls.
    I showed my doctor and he said it was because of the surgery and the medications I take for my bladder.
    I actually have a bald patch at the back of my head, luckily I am able to cover it up by putting my hair up.
    I suppose the hair follicles die off?????

    Sorry I can't be of much help to you.
