I am 77 years old. I have always had a nice thick head of hair. I believe since taking Sucralfate i have suffered a lot of hair loss. I have been to a hair doctor and she gave me a routine that required being on Roagain for a year, applying another liquid to my scalp(but not too much as it would cause face hair) and a pill that was for the prostrate. She really didn't hit on anything specific that was causing the hair loss. I checked all my meds. and I am on quite a few. Sucralfate was the only one that mentions hair loss. I want to stop taking it, but what other drugs does as good a job as this one to help stomach problems?
I have been taking Prilosec for several years now, just to find out it causes severe kidney damages. I have a hiaterial (don't know how to spell it) hearnea. I need it to keep from having severe heartburn & acid reflux. What other med. may I take that doesn't have the severe side effects it does?
