Hair Loss

Diagnosed with SLE a while back, have been on chronic meds ever since (prednisone, celebrex, nivaquin). Experiencing thinning of hair and abit of hair loss around my crown and forehead. Asked my DOC what will be safe to use with chronic meds and he said to ask a pharmacist. Some of the products are :

1. Minoxidil

2. Nu-Hair

3. Regaine Lotion

Please help!

I would not advise using Minoxidil (and thus also Regaine) in case of SLE - Nu-Hair would thus be the better )or safest) option
