Questions to the study
Does the hair grow back? I have been on Jardiance for 9 months and have lost about 1/2 of what used to be very thick hair. The hair loss is slowing greatly, but is the lost hair gone forever? Also, do I read the results correctly and can I assume there is 0% loss after 12 months?
I have had 2 Prolia injections - one in Feb. 2017 and one in Aug. 2017. I have noticed considerable hair loss. Will this hair loss be permanent? If not, how long will it take for the hair to grow back. I do not plan on having any more Prolia injections.
After 4 months of being on Lyrica with internal shingles, my hair has been slowly falling out by the strands over the last month. Does this hair grow back after discontinuing Lyrica and getting over the bad bad of shingles?
User reviews to the study
My hairloss has been steady, dose it ever go away or stop faking out as much? My fair usted to be think now it's thin soon i might have bald spot! I'm scared but I'm not exactly sure which of my meds might be causing it, I'm thinking ativan cause it's my strongest med. Help does anyone have any ...
Hi, I have been on Enbrel for 14 weeks and my hair is already falling out. I am not happy. Because my system developed anti-bodies against Humira after 9 years and Methotrexate caused liver damage I have been taken off both. Never experienced hair loss with those drugs.
I have been taking Zolinza for three months and I have lost a great deal of hair. I have several bald patches on top of my head. Zolinza is helping the mycosis fungicides but the hair loss is very distressing. Is there any hope while I am on this medication that I will stop losing my hair?
