my daughter takes duloxetine, and has noticed a bald patch the size of a fifty pence, the hair or bald patch is at the front of the scalp, an dis completely smooth, no hair at all in that area
I am so glad I am not alone, but feel sorry for your daughter. I am losing hair like crazy and I am also on Duloxetine. I have been on it for several years and my hair is thinning and I am losing it in gobs, especially when I take a shower. I am losing it in the front, along my hairline on both sides. My hairdresser just commented to me the other day how my hair has thinned since she has known me the past four years. I think it is because it is the generic brand. I don't remember losing so much hair when I was on the name brand Cymbalta. Next time I get it filled I am going to really re-read the package insert and I am going to look it up here and talk to my pharmacist.
Good luck to your daughter. I hope I don't have to buy a wig!

Cymbalta - I've been taking Duloxetine for 20 days. At first I had a few side affects. Nothing major
