Hair loss...

Have anyone of you experience hair loss due to psych meds? I've been taking at least one type of psych meds for the past 12 years. My hair has for the most part got greasy since puberty but my hair loss/thinning started since around senior year of high. Being female I don't know what it is.

Nah, not medication related. I’m just a run-of-the-mill male with a non-ideal genetic template, it takes a little longer every day to wash my face.

Yeah, not medication-related for me. Anyway, I think I have it pretty much under control with minoxidil and some special shampoos/conditioner.

Probably not your best bet to ask a forum full of men. Hard to say whether it's medication or just the ravages of time.

I used to have dreams where my teeth got loose and fell out. Now I have dreams where my teeth and hair get loose and fall out.

I didn't know rogaine had stuff for females. It's pricey. Maybe when I get my check I'll look into buying rogaine for womem

You're right.. I'm probably better off looking else where. I think most of us had nightmares of teeth falling out the mouth. Never so much as hair loss.

Don't waste money on the brand stuff. Get Kirkland or something, from Costco or eBay. Also, I think the women's version is just a lower concentration, so I wonder if you could save money by getting the men's version and just using less of it or something. I'm sure you can find more info about this online. :)

I'll look into it. I probably should talk to my doctor.

Could it be the result of treatment you're receiving for cancer that you failed to specify? If not, then I'm out of ideas. Sorry! :heart: :heart: :heart:

Well in your case it could be because of your peculiar illness—the bubonic plague. Don’t forget to take good care of those buboes!

Maybe cut back a bit on the special baths? 😂❤️😂

Nope no cancer. It's just something I'm worried about. Being female it's just embarrassing and is probably a sign of something. I need to get ahold of my doctor and ask. I need to get a hold of her anyways for the covid vaccine anyways.
