From this study (6 months ago):
EKI856 on Sep, 28, 2013:
my hair and bread started to loss 6 months ago. type of loss is Alopcia Areata. Also I am taking citalopram from 1.5 month ago. hair loss especially in head increasing. I am using variety of drugs for hair loss. but no good result.
I think a relation is between citalopram and Alopcia areata.
I am 36 years old, Man, Iranian.
Many thanks for your attention.
From this study (6 months ago):
I have had hair loss for years but it has gotten worse over the last 6 months. Sometimes I loose a handful at a time.
From this study (12 months ago):
Also experienced alopecia after taking zoloft 13 years ago, and from other antidepressants.
I have occassional eczema and skin allergies.
Since alopecia from antidepressants is not extremely common, is there a strong possibility that my hair loss is caused from another condition? My symptoms: fatigue, alopecia, skin conditions.
