I've been having alot of hair loss the last couple of months. Initially I thought it was old age (I'm 71); today I started thinking about what has changed in my life, and I realized I had started taking Allopurinol for gout about two months ago. I googled Allopurinol and hair loss and found out that hair loss does happen to a small percentage of people, especially women. Joining the group to learn how severe the problem can get, if there is anything I can do about it, and if hair ever regrows
Hi - I was diagnosed with Breast Cancer in 2013 (mastectomy, lymph node clearance, chemo, radiotherapy, tamoxifen for 2 years, Letrozole for 3 months). when I started Letrozole, I had a DEXA scan to check my bones and they were found to be low density (especially my spine) and I was diagnosed with Osteopenia. I've experienced aching joints (hobbling around, especially when getting up from sitting down in a chair for a period of time) and recently went on holiday to Barcelona (yay!) and decided I'd give my bones a holiday too and take some Naproxen. I've taken it before (actually, I prefer Voltarol tablets, but they've been taken off shelves for 'heart related problems') but when the aches and pains went away, I was nearly back to my old self. I walked for miles, leaped into pools, and my arms and legs really toned up. It was fabulous. Now that I'm back, I've checked how long I can take Naproxen for (forever?!?!) Apparently it can cause Osteopenia - seeing as though I've already got that - will it make it worse and push me into osteoporosis? Any thoughts, advice would be appreciated!
