Been taking trazodone for YEARS every night to help me sleep. Highest dose was 100 mg and even then I never had a full night of sleep, still it helped me fall asleep fast and was better than nothing. Can't pin point when I started losing A LOT of hair for a 25 year old but it seems to be around 3 years ago around when I started the trazodone. I'm down to breaking a 25 mg pill in half every night b/c I want to rule out if this is why my hair is falling out. Anyone else have this happen? I need an answer no doctor cane give me one. :(
Are you still taking the trazodone? Has your hair grown back? When did the hair shedding stop once you stopped taking the trazodone?
I took trazodone on June 8th and noticed on July 8th a month later that I was loosing my hair. I've lost almost 40% of my hair at this point. It's devastating seeing tons of hair falling out daily. I've read drug induced hair loss can take 2-6 months to resolve. I'm just looking for others who have gone through similar issues to see when they recovered and how long it took.
