It is not listed as a possible s. effect:
Yes, hair loss is a side effect whether the company says it is or not. I just started taking it 6 months ago and my hair is falling out as if I've had chemotherapy. Hair loss is a rare side effect of antidepressants. My mother's hair fell out as well on a different antidepressant and she had to get a wig until she weened off it. I'm currently staying on 37.5 mg even though my doctor recommended I go up to 100. My hair loss due to Effexor actually why I just joined this site. I realize this post is old. Were you able to get off Effexor and regrow your hair?
I was on a high dose of Effexor XR for years and no MDs could figure out why my long blonde hair disappeared and would not regrow because my hair follicles were still alive.
I was switched from Effexor XR to Wellbutrin and ever since the switch, my hair has started growing back with no problem.
