On several meds for fibro, depession, pain and IBS.
Yes, many people do. I have had this problem after becoming disabled in chronic pain with RSD back in 1999 and only realizing it was causing hair loss about 5yrs later.
I've researched this and it is normal for anyone not taking medications to lose 150 hairs a day but I know after being on pain medications, a muscle relaxer, anti-anxiety and anti-depressants now for 11yrs that I lose a lot more than normal. My head still seems full of hair not having any baldness or Alopecia but it is so bad that every time I shower washing my hair I have to stick the amount of hair that comes out of my head on the wall and then throw it in the trash.
Both my doctors and even my stylists told me it was due to taking medications.
I hope this helps
