Can your hair grow back once you start taking Tacrolimus?

It depends a lot on why you lost your hair to begin with. If it's alopecia, or male-pattern baldness, tacrolimus is unlikely to make any impact upon the matter. If you're hair fell out because you were ill, but are now healthy on tacrolimus, it may grow back. However tacrolimus, unlike some older immunosuppressives, does not encourage hirsutism (excessive hair growth) as a side-effect.
