: Hi all,
: I am curious to know if any of you have experienced hair loss or thinning after taking certain medications. I have been growing my hair out for over 5 years now without a hair cut. It's down just shy of my butt. I noticed that it seems to be thinning and I am losing more hair than normal when I shower. I suspect its due to a new medication my dr. put my on about 4 months ago. Its a stimulant medication. I may stop taking the medication. If it is indeed the medication causing it, I wonder if it's possible my hair will thicken back up. Anyone else have experience with this? Thanks in advance.
Yes there are medications that will do that.
That having been said talk to your doctor before you stop taking the medication.
