i have to take singulair for severe allergies causing my asthma but for 4 weeks have big bald patches appearing on my head and need to know if this is related
in some people it is possible to lose ur hair because od the medication... idk what it is about the meds, it has something to do with the chemicals in it ... i hope that this answers ur question...
My Daughter did too, we took her off singulair and put her on Allegra and she had full re-growth. There are others on Facebook with parents of children with Alopecia.
I have also been on montelukast 10mg for 3 months and are noticing rapid bald patches appearing on my head. Anyone else with this issue and what to do?
Has anyone got confirmation from the Doctor that it was the singulair? Her doctor is saying that didn't cause the hair loss because it isn't listed as a side effect.
I have been using the generic for singulair for a few years. I have been losing my hair and lately it has gotten worse. I have researched each one of my meds and have gone off mostly everything not really needed. I’m down to the singulair and still losing so I say yes it’s making my hair fall out and I have bald patches in the front and thinning all over my head. I was on estrogen and my thyroid medicine so the combinations all cause hair loss. I’m just using the BRAND name for my thyroid medicine now. NO DR will tell you if a medicine is the cause. Mine says risk/benefit so I am done taking the risk.
I’ve also been noticing hair loss and thinning quite rapidly for the past year! My PCP said it comes with age?? ( I’ve had thick hair always!) because I’m on so many medications, it’s hard to determine which one may be causing this? Each dr that prescribes, says not theirs? My sister, who has lost most of her hair due to other issues, loved singular but the little hair she had left, was falling out so she stopped and so did the hair loss??? I recently went to a specialist who in fact said that most of the hair loss is the allergy meds? Again... allergist said no! I saw other posts of stopping and trying Allegra so I think that’s my next step? So frustrating!!!
