My friend got some shots to help her MS around 4 years ago... She stopped taking the shots four years ago, but she is claiming her eyebrows are gone now because of the shots.... I'm curious to know if this is legit... I'm also afraid she maybe be on other drugs or worse illegal drugs and concerned if she is lying and needs help... Please advise.
I can not think of a medication for MS that would cause someone to lose their eyebrows only. Most medications that cause hair loss would tend to affect scalp hair significantly.
Good luck helping your friend.
