I find it interesting that SSRIs seem to have this connection with hair growth and PFS and PSSD have so many similarities. The connection could be the androgen receptors that the PFS research in Kiel, Germany is examining.

I also found articles saying that Accutane (Isotretinoin) can cause alopecia in men and women.
