I myself have not experienced hair loss but some drugs can basically make you lose your hair. Are you on any medications?

Hairloss while taking Paxil? I've been on it for 8 1/2 years and have never had an issue with hairloss. My libito is totally lost though... =o(

Hi Happy Sunday I for get do you take thyroud meds? Thyroid issues can make you have noted hair loss. Just a thought hope it helps talk to you soon. Barb

Hey Missy, I am actually a hairdresser and maybe I can help. The top reasons someone loses hair suddenly are, stress, illness and medications used to treat those illnesses, heredity and specifically thyroid or hormone issues. It may be a temporary problem lasting about 12 weeks. I have had pneumonia before and was treated with a powerful antibiotic called biaxin. Both of those things contributed to a temporary but profuse loss of hair. I went to my doctor and he said any hair loss lasting over 12 weeks should be checked by a dermatologist, an endorcinologist or an OB/Gyn. To restimulate hair growth, take a stresstab vitamin supplement with zinc (you can get the store brand equivalent, make sure it is the formula with zinc, it is the same formulation as the hair vitamins only less expensive and you only have to take 1 per day instead of 3 to 9. Take it with a meal, increase your protein intake and brush you hair for 5 minutes everyday or night.

Only time I ever had noted hair loss is when my thyroid meds needed adjusted. Out of nowhere for no given reason my hair was coming out by the handfuls! Sometimes just a little adjustment means a lot. It is important that you go to a competant enochronologist. He adjusted mine to (I'm not recommeding this dose for you. This is an example to show you how even a small way off can cause you major trouble!) 88mcg and 100mcg synthroid on alternating days.
