- 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??

- Omeprazole or pantoprazole?
I take an oral contraceptive, Diane-35 ED, which is not in the list of drugs to choose from on this site.
Recently, the medication I was taking for my stomach ulcer (Omeprazole) became unavailable in my country of residence and was replaced by Patoprazole. I started taking it yesterday morning and by midday today the side effects were unbearable. I am nauseous, have diarrhea, and a very severe headache. This didn't happen with Omeprazole. Do you think this is a drug interaction or is there some difference between the two that I am perhaps sensitive to?

- Victoza and liver cancer (cholangiocarcinoma)
My husband was recently diagnosed with stage 4 liver cancer after taking Victoza for several years. The doctor discontinued the Victoza when the cancer was diagnosed but he actually started feeling better after he stopped it until the cancer started progressing. Since cholangiocarcinoma nd pancreatic cancer are similar, is there a link between Victoza and cholangiocarcinoma?

From this study (4 days ago):
I have severe neutropenia (cyclic) and wonder whether it can be caused by Pantoprazole - I'm on 40 mg/dag
From this study (4 days ago):
I took 10000mcg dose of biotin and a prenatal vitamin on an empty stomach this morning. 4 hours later, developed the worst burning pain in my upper A's middle abdomen ever. It won't go away it's been 4 hours.
From this study (2 weeks ago):
My migraines are with aura (classic) including vision changes, hemiplegic (numb arm, face, mouth, throat) and as part of the aura, inability to remember some words (presents like a stroke). While on victoza, I had three migraines in one week, a lifetime anomaly that has not repeated since quitting the drug. I usually will get at most 2 a year, and often go years without one, but it appears victoza sets off a major attack.
