  • Hair loss happening on linzess
    I've been taking 145 mg of Linzess for about 4 months and have noticed my hair is getting so much thinner. I really noticed it the third month I was on it. It's a FABULOUS FABULOUS medicine for us who have CIC, but I don't want to be bald before I'm 50!!!
  • Hair loss with enbrel
    I have been on Enbrel for 4 months and started seeing significant hair thinning at the second month of treatments (50 mg once per week). My Rhuematologist suggested 800 mcg of folic acid. I am still losing hair although I am feeling so much better.
  • Hair loss with metformin hydrochloride usage
    I have been taking the drug Metformin Hydrochloride for about 5 months and definitely find that I am losing hair which is a problem I have never experienced. Always had the healthiest hair, no problems. Well, I am finding that I am losing lair significantly and feel that the manufacturer of this drug should post that this is a side effect as so many have been complaining of the same side effect. I also began having problems with my teeth and always prided myself of having great teeth with no problems. I also understand that if there is a deficiency of Vitamin B12 that this together with taking this drug can cause these issues of hair loss and mouth/teeth problems. Again; I feel this should be totally and more readily informed to anyone taking this drug. I don't feel that anyone should have to give up things important to them to maintain a healthy way of living...I am going to see my physician and discuss what other options that may exist as I am not feeling very comfortable with this drug and the side effects I am experiencing.
  • Double vision on levothyroxine
    Diagnosed with under active thyroid in January 2011. Noticed onset of double vision in January 2014. Blurred vision and double vision worsened to such an extent that my glasses prescription has changed three times in less than 7 months. All the symptons I experience are a direct result of taking Levothyrixine and have increased as my dose has been increased.
  • Depo provera overdose
    Dr acidentially gave me something like 9 times the normal dose of depo provera. My life has been miserable! I have fought excessive weight gain, infertility, severe cellulite, and acne for 20 years.

  • M. Hatfield on Feb, 14, 2015:

    Female 59 years old. I started taking Gabapentin about a year ago. I was put on a low dose because of a side effect from many years ago. My head just did not feel right so I was concerned about takeing it again. So. I was put on 300 mg. twice a day. It was for lower back pain and RLS. I notice almost immediately that my hair started falling out but did not know what it was. Just tonight did I look it up and found out that it did cause hair loss. This was not told to me before I started taking it. I have complained to two hairdresser who noticed that my hair was falling out to. Now, I do not have half the hair that I used to. I am afraid to use any dye on my hair or any kind of shampoo. This is awful. Now I have to go have my hair cut "short" and layered so that it looks like I have more. This company should have to pay compensation to all of these people like me. It is a shame. I hate it.

    I have been off of Gabapentin for 5 months. I am still losing my hair at what seems to be an accelerated rate. I am a 33 year old female. I am in great physical health other than that and follow an above average healthy diet. Their is no history of hair loss in my family. I experienced no hair loss prior to taking this drug.
