- Can omeprazeloe cause muscle loss?
Previously to taking Omeprazeloe I had normal bowel movements after getting control of the diarrhea caused by the irritable bowel syndrome. The day after I took the first capsule I experienced extreme constipation. It was hard to have a BM and had to go several times. It has caused bad abdominal pain. I started to have hair loss. It has thinned to half as much as I had. My migraines came on like crazy. I lost eight pounds over about a month after I stopped taking it. I lost fat I had gained in my abdomin but also my muscles have deteriated some. I would recommend that no one takes this medication and it should be taken off the market. People who have suffered from taking this medication should be compensated.
- Can xanax use cause female hair loss?
I am losing a lot of hair. It started about two months ago, and I went to dermatologist who ordered some medication for two weeks. It stopped. I have been using Victoza for almost a year and take Xanax daily long term. Can either of these drugs cause my hair loss?? It's back now, and full speed. At this rate, I'll be bold in two weeks more. I'm desperate, but my doctors think if the Victoza is causing it, it will regenerate once I stop, which I'm in the process of doing. However, if there is a chance Xanax is causing it, I need to know to find an alternative drug for my nerves. Any help??

- I've had 30+ kidney stones w no explanation why. i took accutane for 1 yr in hs
So I've had chronic kidney stones since high school and no Dr. I go to can give me an explanation of what's causing them. I've been to urologists thyroid specialists, no answers. Then I saw a commercial about the negative affects accutane can have on the body (which I was on during high school) and now I'm wondering if there is any correlation?
- Menopause at age 37 with a history of taking 3 cycles of accutane in back between ages 16 to 25
I have had cystic acne most of my life. I have been on accutane 3 different times. At ages 16, 21 and 25. Have always had very heavy periods never diagnosed with any condition pertaining to it but now I'm in menopause and have been since age 37. Never had any children. My hormones are non exsistant, estrogen, progesterone, fsh, all low. I never put 2 and 2 together, could accutane have actually caused menopause even though I took it 20 years ago. Anyone else in early menopause and have in the past taken accutane?
- 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.

From this study (1 year ago):
Started shedding lot of hair while on drug in 2001 but did not relate it to Accutane...moderate shedding continued and now my hair is 1/4 of what it used to be...could Accutane do that after having used it 10-11 years ago?
