... and thinner. Blood test show no problems. No heredity of loss in family. No stress except for worried about my hair. I'm 63 yrs old, but all women in my family had a full set of hair. Only thing to think about is this drug I'm taking. Please let me know if this drug could be my problem.

good morning Hyrum... interesting... I have noticed the exact same thing happening to me, along with my nails are in terrible shape which is not normal for me. Today I decided to look at the side effects of Nexium, found nothing about hair loss/thinning but did find your question posted on this web site. Blood test show that I am not deficient in anything... I have been on Nexium for a very long time 10yrs & have notice my hair loss/thinning happening for a long time but increased over the last 4 yrs... I guess it is time to do my own study & got off of Nexium for a while & see just what happens ... I will return to this site to communicate with you if interested... Thanks

well so since my last post, i had to change insurances. the new insurance no longer covered nexium, but instead covered a drug called Dexilant. I was very upset about the change at first, bcse in the past nexium was the only thing that kept the acid under control. HOWEVER, i am SO glad that this happened bcse not only does it work, my hair stopped thinning, and healed. I strongly encourage yall to look into it, and to see if ur insurance covers it.. i will say it doesnt work as quickly persay as nexium, but taking it daily like u should itll pick right back up within a couple days. hope this helps!!
