I have been on sertraline for two weeks for anxiety and have been experiencing depression and I think my hair has been coming out?? Also have restless leg syndrome.I dont think a medication should cause depression.That doesnt seem right?? Any thoughts on this?
Temporary hair loss is a well documented side effect of Sertraline.
If this a problem for you talk with your doctor - you may need to be switched to another anti-depressant.
How old are you? Young people (under aged 24) are more susceptible to worsening depression when first starting Sertraline. You should not hesitate seeing your doctor if this applies to you.
