@Stella I just found this amoungst other testimonies that Cymbalta could be the cause of alopecia Areata! Once you stopped, did your hair grow back??
Hello kaffea. I'm more curious to know, (if you are the person losing the hair), how long have you been taking the cymbalta. I was on it for about a year and a half, had a very late reaction to it, and hence had to stop it. best wishes.
