I took apriso for 6 weeks and am now experiencing significant hair loss and want to know if anyone else has had a similar experience.
Yes. I have been taking 4 Apriso daily for U.C. for the past 3 years. Last year I was diagnosed with Alopecia. The type is called frontal fibrosing Alopecia. I was told by the dermatologist it is permanent hair loss. Before taking Apriso I did not have this condition. I suspect it is a side effect of the medication.
The doctors will just say there are so many causes for hair loss that pin pointing the cause is impossible. :(
