hi dr. rassman,
im having a procedure done of 2500 grafts and was told that coumadin and digoxin can cause hair loss. im on both medications right now for a-fib but may not be on them permanently. im 38 and in very good health otherwise. could you tell me if this is accurate to your knowledge as a leader in hair transplantation?
Coumadin and digoxin may cause hair loss. You need a good miniaturization study to see the quality of your donor hair and see if the medication has affected your donor hair quality, as you may have a small risk of further hair loss after the hair transplant. You should never discontinue any medication on your own, especially coumadin and digoxin, as prescribed by your doctor. Please express these concerns to your doctor so he/she can better address your concerns.
