I am on Celebrex for last two years. By the end of first year my hair start falling. It happened for about 5 months. Then I am diagnosed with iron deficiency and I start taking iron supplement. Amazingly, my hair stopped falling within few weeks and they are now as healthy and thick as were in my youth. Amazing!!!
