thyroid
I have been on Eltroxin for more than a year because of it being fast. I thought my hair would improve but it is still falling out quite badly.

Elaine, Eltroxin® is used to treat under active thyroids, not over active ones. Your hair may fall out due to an under or over active thyroid, so that doesn’t help me much either. Let me know what the actual problem is and we’ll take it form there. Please post your reply as a new question to ensure that I get it. Good luck.
