Can you answer these questions (Ask a question):

  • 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??
  • If you stop taking oxcarbazepine will your hair grow back?
    has been getting thinner on top and now there's a little bald spot it just seems like the last month and a half maybe that I've noticed that my hair has been getting thinner on top and now there's a little bald spot where its really thin and you can see the scalp and he increased my dosage by 600 milligrams
  • Can you get chills with multiple myeloma?
    Do multiple myeloma patients have the chills without fever? My husband was diagnosed 2 months ago and has had 2 months of chemo 2x weekly for 3 weeks. He has Velacade and a steroid Decadron. He has also had 3 rounds of cytoxan. Why is he getting chills?

  • 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.
