That's funny, I'm on Lithium and didn't know that. I do loose my hair especially when I wash it and dry it. I'm hypothyroid but on meds. So I guess it's the Lithium then. That's too bad because I'm going to be on this med the rest of my life. It works well for me. I guess I will be balding sooner. Ha! Ha!
I didn't lose my hair while on Lithium, but I have from some other medications, and I always do after a surgery - at times it has been a lot! I've always had it grow back. In the past year my hair has thinned quite a bit - I believe because of menopause. It has thinned all around my face, which I understand is hormonal. Hopefully yours while grow back now that you are no longer on the Lithium. - ElizaJane
