From this study (1 year ago):
I am on so many new drugs now since September and have noticed hair loss. You can see it on the floor each and every day. Even the beautician says that she can feel my hair is thinner. I have very thick, healthy hair. I am at a loss as to what is making me lose my hair and can only think of medication. I had a thyroid test and the doctor said my thyroid is "stone normal." What else could cause hair loss. HELP.
Can you answer these questions (what is this?):
- Can pradaxa cause mds?
I want to know if taking Pradaxa can cause MDS; and if so, would stopping taking Pradaxa cause the MDS to go away or would I need to take treatments to help the MDS anyway?
- 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.
