Does Myrbetriq cause hair loss?

Hair loss does not appear to be a known side effect of Myrbetriq ... but I suppose it may be possible.

I have been taking Myrbetriq 50 mg for about 2 months now. I love the way it works for me, and that is saying a lot because once my insurance would not carry Detrol LA anymore, I have had four long years of trying one drug after another trying to get the same relief I got from Detrol LA. That said, I am experiencing major hair loss that is comparable to when I have tried to take Elmiron in the past. I know from this experience that the cause of my hair loss is most likely medication related, not environmental, and Myrbetriq is the only drug change I have had in a year. I called my Doctor, but she said it is unlikely. I am about to swap over to a substitute for a few months to try out my theory before I am bald. Has anyone else experienced this?

I am losing hair to but it my be something else- stress or other meds . I wondered about the hair loss when my husband said "you are shedding" I am wondering too but I have had a lot of stress lately- caring for my dying mother and her loss and other family health issues. I have been taking myrbetric for about 4 months.

I have been taking Myrbetriq for about a year now, and I have lost a huge amount of hair. It has been devastating because I had no clue it was the medication causing it. But I also had another rare side effect with Myrbetriq. While testing to figure out why my hair was falling out, my doctor discovered that my liver was not working quite right. (AST and ALT levels almost 4 times the normal range). I have NEVER been sick with anything in my life other than common colds, etc. In addition, I have NEVER had any alcohol. I just don't drink and never have. There was no reason for the levels to be where they were. My doctor discovered that liver problems were a rare side effect of Myrbetriq. And while she could not find any information on the Myrbetriq causing hair loss, she COULD find information on liver issues causing hair loss.

I am having major hair loss & the only new drug I'm taking is Myrbetriq, so that must be it! I think I'll try 2 Oxytrol patches at a time. I need my hair!! Although the oral oxybutinin gave me nightmares.

I also am suffering hair loss that is not normal. I have been using Mybetriq for only 3 months and the hair loss worsened in the last month and has gotten bad in the last week. I am no longer going to use this product.

I have been on myrbetriq for almost 2 years. My hair is definitely thinner. After 6 months on drug, I noticed thinner hair and asked my doctor about it. She said she never heard of that side effect. So I thought maybe it was because of my age. Recently it seems much much thinner and after reading the other comments, I am convinced it is this drug!

I agree, Rosebeidle. There are two many of us experiencing the same problem - hair loss. My biggest fear is that it will continue. I was on chemotherapy about 10 years ago and never lost my hair (due to the type of chemo I was taking). I've never had a problem with hair loss until I started taking Myrbetriq. I think it is terrible that they aren't listing it as a side effect.

I started Myhbrtriq about 1 month ago. Within 2 weeks started to experience major hair loss. Like a lot of the previous post, my hair was thick and now it is thinning quickly. I have seen no changes in bladder control and it possibly has caused more problems. I am stopping this medication today.
