Hello Ashley abusaft. I used several sources to look up your question. There are over 40 side effects listed to taking Fentanyl. All common, some more than another. I could not find the one in question, hair loss. It very well might be, just that people have not reported it as a side effect to taking the drug. If I do find a yes, will add it below as a comment. Regards pledge
I've been on fentanyl for several months now and I was questioning that too but I'm also on 7 other meds too so I am not 100% sure which one is doing it but my hair used to be so thick I had to but special hair band to keep it up and it also hangs down past my behind but now it is real thin so maybe it is true but may I ask what other meds are you on if any
I am experiencing the same problem. 49 yr female. I have read several blogs on this problem with Fentanyl. Please report problem to medwatch which works with the FDA. If they have enough complaints they will revue this problem. Many many people are having this happen. My hair has fallen out all over my head. I have had ALL kinds of blood work to rule thyroid, hormone etc out. Perfect health besides chronic pain after 2 back surgeries. Hope we can get FDA to look into this.
