Welcome to the team - I take the same medication as Cindy - spironalactone. It is used to reduce the level of testosterone that some people have...thanks to PCOS. It can help with both symptoms - hair loss and excess hair, because it is reducing the testosterone that causes both of those lovely little problems that some of us experience. My hair used to be getting a little thinner than it used to be, but that seems to have stopped since I've been in the spiro for over a year now. The facial hair is less, but still there. Spiro is also supposed to help with acne, if that's a symptom you have, because the excess testosterone causes that very sexy symptom as well.
Cindy - jim's mom had thyroid cancer several years ago and had her thyroid removed as well - she's doing just fine now.
Hope that helps...welcome to the group!!!
