I am a 29 year old female who lives a healthy active lifestyle and isn't predisposed to family balding. I have been on and off this medication for the past 7 months. I took up to 100mg and came off it, then a few weeks later went back on it but only took 75mg. I noticed almost three weeks ago my hair shedding more than usual but didn't think much of it. I went to see my psychiatrist last week and the first thing he said to me was that I "looked different." I instantly knew he meant my hair so I told him my hair seemed to be falling out. He was instantly concerned and told me to stop taking the 75mg. The next day I woke up to a very noticeable thinning head of hair than the day before. I immediately googled Topamax and hair loss and found many reviews with people sharing almost the same story I had. I was not made aware that hair loss was a side effect of this medication by my doctor or any of the websites I looked at when googling side effects of Topamax. If I had been made aware that losing my hair was a possibility while taking Topamax I would have NEVER gone on it in the first place. I am overwrought and scared my hair is gone for good or won't return to its normal growth and texture. I wake up to less and less hair each day with no exaggeration. It's only been a week and two days since I've gone off Topamax. I am now looking into having to invest in buying a wig. I am so pissed with my doctor and the manufacturers who distribute a medication that causes such emotionally distressing side effects. I never read anything about hair loss as a side effect of Topamax until I had to specifically google, "Topamax and hair loss." I have read countless reviews from others suffering without their hair who are just waiting on a hope and a prayer that their hair will grow back too. Does anyone have any positive and reassuring stories of their experience with alopecia caused by Topamax and hair regrowth? I would very much appreciate it. I wish everyone the best on their recovery. You're not alone.

Hi, I have been taking Nexium and or Delixaint for around 10 years. In the last year I have lossed all of my hair completely. I don't know what to do without the medicine I throw up, get nauseous and have a lot of pain. I guess I am going to have to have that surgery.😬
