MyHair!! on Mar, 15, 2014:
I am a woman in my 40's and have taken Lyrica on the increasing schedule for the last month for neuropathic pain. Suddenly my hair is falling out by the clumps! Did your hair grow back when meds were stopped? Did anyone's? This is my 2nd try at this drug as side effects of water retention and malaise were extensive before. I am likely going off it and staying off this time, but I just need to know if anyone got their hair back? I already lost a lot of me on other meds and just can't handle any more!

I am a 36 yr old female I too have lost hair due to taking gabapentin...like many others it started falling out in shower in alarming rates. My hair was down to the middle of my back and is now just below my ears...only because it has started to grow out...it started breaking off in some spots an inch from my root. This is a severe side effect and if i knew this was going to happeni would of never taken it. I am currently trying to wean off of it after 2 years of 800 mil. 3 xday,but that also is its own battle in its self. Good luck to all in your gabapentinside effects.

My hair fell out every time I washed it or brushed it when I was taking Lyrica. My doctor switched me over to Gabapentin a month ago and it is still falling out and the hair shaft is very thin and breaks easily. I am a paraplegic and have severe neuropathy from my waist down to the bottom of both feet. Gabapentin helps, but like Lyrica, it only takes away 20% or less of the pain. I will be getting a spinal cord stimulator in 3 weeks and maybe I'll be able to take a very small dose of gabapentin or hopefully none at all.

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.
Christina J on Jun, 25, 2012:
About 8months ago my Dr. put me on gabapentin for back pain that had gone down my leg and was making my toes numb. I have now been through 2 back surgeries and they want to do a spinal fusion surgery next. I said no to thenext surgery. I noticed soon after starting the gabapentin my hair was starting to get shorter at a rate of a couple inches at a time. I have baby fine hair so I can't afford to lose it. It has fallen out to the point I am starting to consider wigs. I know it was the gabapentin now that I see it is making other people lose their hair as well. My hair started out where I could see it under my arms and now it is above my shoulders.

I am a 39 yr old female. Prescribed Neurontin for my Fibromyalgia pain. As it has helped, I have been noticing for several months now my hair falling out at alarming rates. I thought perhaps I have Lupus and that's why. But labs all come back ok. I'm thinking I need to get off this drug. I used to have beautiful thick hair. It's so thin and won't stop falling out. Fistfulls after shower and throughout the day. I font know what to do.
Jodie on Aug, 16, 2013:

Can you answer these questions (what is this?):
- Is a side effect of losartan hair loss?
My doctor took me off Lisinopril due to the cough and put me on Losartan. After about 1 year I noticed hair breakage and hair loss. Can the hair damage be reverse by going back to Lisinopril?
- What medications cause hair loss
Been experiencing hair loss for several months and the loss has increased the last couple of months. My doctor ran thyroid test and it was normal. The loss has been gradual and it is not breaking off, but coming out at the root.
- Has anyone had hair loss due to accutane that was taken 10 or so years ago?
Started extreme shedding in 2001 when I took Accutane
Gradual increase in hair thinning
Now hair is 1/4 of original; could Accutane continue to cause hair loss after 10 years

Due to hair loss I switched over to Morphine. The hair loss goes on. While taking Tramadol for 5 month I've already lost 2/3 of my long and thick hair. In about 3 month I'll be bold - as a woman.
Tramadol elevated my mood. Morphine doesn't. It might even depress me - who knows? Taking 60mg at onc ...
