my mother is almost bald on top of her head
Flurazepam also doesn't have hair loss as a known side effect. Please refer to my answer to your question about Singulair.
I can't find anything that relates flurazepam with hair loss, however, here's a list that is associated with hair loss:
allopurinol, arsenic, apirin, l-asparaginase, bismuth, bleomycin, boric acid, bromocriptine, carbamazepine, carbon monoxide, chlorambucil, chloramphenicol, cimetidine, colchicine, clofibrate, clomiphene citrate, coumarin anticoagulant, cyclophosphamide, cyproterone acetate, dactinomycin, danazol, diethyl carbamazepine, dipyridamole, doxorubicin, ethionamide, etoposide, etretinate, fenifibrate, gentamycin sulphate, guanethidine, heparin (telogen effluvium after 6-16 weeks ), hydroxychloroquine, ibuprofen, idoxuridine, indandione, indomethacin, interferon, iodine, isophosphamide, levamisole, levodopa, lithium, mepacrine, mercury, mesalazine, methisazone, methotrexate, methyl CCNU, methysurgide, metoprolol, mitomycin, mitrexantrone, morphine, nadolol, nafoxidine, nicotinic acid, nicotinyl alcohol, nitrofurantoin sodium, norethisterone, estrogens, oral contraceptives, para aminosalicylate, phenindione, phenprocoumon, potassium thiocyanate, procainamide, propanolol, selenium sulphide, sodium aurothiomalate, sodium valproate, spironolactone, sulphasalazine, tamoxifen, thalium acetate, thiamphenicol, terfenadine, trimethadione, troxidone, vasopressin, vincristine, vindesine, vitamin A, warfarin
If none of these make any sense, then going to see a dermatologist wouldn't be such a bad idea, as they would be the ones to go to for this sort of thing. Here's a link that might be helpful
I sincerely hope that it's due to a medication of some sort cause if that medication is stopped, it's very likely that the hair will grow back. For guys on the other hand, the article that I'm referencing basically says, sorry, but that's just part of life. I suppose that it couldn't hurt to let the doctor who prescribed the medication in the first place know as they know a whole lot more than I do or the internet does to be perfectly honest.
Good luck to your mom - I don't care if I loose my hair, but it's a totally different matter for women! Good luck, and I hope the best for her!
