I have been on and off it for years and never put two and two together till recently when started taking it again and two weeks in my hair started falling out just like it did last time but still don't know if it is the amitiza. Has anyone noticed this?

I was just looking on here to see if anyone was having the hair loss problem with Amitiza as well. It is the only new medication I am on, have not had this problem with the others, so must be this med. Other than that, I do fine on it. So yes, I also am having major hair loss with it.

Hair loss has not been reported.
For more information see:http://www.drugs.com/sfx/amitiza-side-effects.html
If you think hair loss may be related you can report side effects to the FDA at http://www.fda.gov/medwatch/ or 1-800-FDA-1088 (1-800-332-1088).
