    Default can percocet cause hair loss?

    Hello, I just joined the forum and have many questions. I have been taking percocet(ENDOCET)for over 2 years, and am very concerned.I am 26 and my hair is starting to thin out, and was wondering if the percocet has anything to do w/ it.It was always a little thin but is now more noticable. Every doctor I ask ( including 2 hair specialists, my physician, and dermatologist) say it does not cause hair loss. So I figured this might be the best way to find out. I have been reading many posts here and it seems very informative. I had some test on everything from a to z. Including thyroid, liver, kidneys, testosterone. Everything seemed average for my age. I also started taking propecia 3 weeks ago and cut down on the percs (from 4 aday to 1 every other day). Can someone help me? Thanks in advance.

    You know, just as men have genetic pattern premature balding, so do women sometimes. It's just unfortunate.

    You could always go to a spa and get a scalp rejuvenating treatment. Pretty good success rates for new hair growth and scalp health.

    I am in the same boat as you. Yes is does somehow cause hair loss. I head a rich head of hair before i started percocet. Now i have thin to none but only on the top back and middle! Percocet may cause a lack of certain chemicals or nutrients but i do know its from percocet because thats all i take and i eat very well always have!
