  • From this study (6 months ago):

  • significant hair loss for about 8 weeks now--am prescribed Hydrocodone APAP (sub for Norco) 325/10 for mod-severe low back pain and left trochanter pain (occasionally, from femur fracture 2010). Have been on physical therapy regime & take only as needed. Started taking Aug. of 2013 & still on it. No problem initially but last 8 wks, hair stylist mentioned "significant shedding" -- even lightly combing causes my once healthy hair to lose 15-20 hairs/day. No other reason than meds, as diet is excellent in all categories: protein, fruit, brown rice, chicken, yogurt, Whole Foods shopping, & I am very healthy, other than osteoporosis & current treatment for lumbar-sacral pain (for many yrs.). Am allergic to nothing.
