I am suspicious this med has caused hair loss in me because of when both events started. Even though tramadol has worked for me in controlling my back/sciatica and knee pain, the hair loss has been depressing
I have suffered with back pain since 2009 andhave had two spinal fusions took tramadol many times it didn't help me but never lost any hair. I waa just on cymbalta and have lost about half of my hair. Dr said pain stress and anxiety can cause hair loss if u haven't done so yet fo get your thyroid checked mine was normal so it wasn't my problem but it could be yours good luck and keep your chin up!
Hi, it is little known that hair loss has been attributed to Tramadol use. Reports of this are very low, less than 1%. It is difficult to say if the Tramadol actually caused it, or as afisc9 has said, it could be caused by other conditions and be a coincidence? Who's to know. But the statistics say it is possible...
I take 200megs in the morning. I take them for no other reason but to feel good. I also repeat that dose in
the evening. I am losing my hair in patches. I"m afraid to stop for I am prone to depression. I would go to the doctor but I am worried that he may discontinue their use. I am 66 and balding slightly but this is tragic. I have read so much about folks suffering from withdrawal, I am afraid that with my propensity towards feeling down that this is yet another reason for crying off any help. Please can anyone offer any suggestions towards my dilemma? Although it's my own stupid bloody fault
