Herbal hair tonic withdrawn over liver concerns
A Chinese herbal medicine, taken as capsules to encourage hair growth, has been withdrawn from sale because of a risk of liver injury, the TGA has advised.

The regulator has received 15 reports since 2014 of liver-related adverse events associated with the products, taken to promote hair growth and health.
These include six cases with markers of severe liver injury,
