May Not be listed but it suppresses estrogen and that could cause hair loss, stress from the illness and just having the illness would tend to cause it. Hair will come back most probably, don't stop taking it. Eat plenty of protein, take a stress tab with zinc and try not to worry about the hair loss, it should come back. When the seasons change we notice more hair loss also.
