since i started taking celexa 20mg,i have been losing a handful of hair,could it be a side effect from this med
I am have been taking Lexapro 10 mg for 6 weeks. It is very similair to Celexa and I have been loosing a lot of my hair. I did not read that as a side effect but maybe someone else that is on these meds can answer our questions.
It is scary to loose so much hair.
Hi, lady! I just read up on this on a number of forums and people who said they had hair loss said it does grow back when you stop the medication. If it's a serious problem for you, you might have to try another med.
I also read a PubMed paper recently that (and you won't believe this!) reported cases of Celexa hair loss responding to Centrum Silver (the OTC multi-vitamin).
If you like the medication and don't want to stop, it might be worth a try. Can't hurt!
Good luck to you! WCV
