My hair started to thin around the crown (on the left side) about a year and a half ago. I think it is because of the Antidepressants Lexapro & Celexa that I have been on for the past two years. Prior to that I had no problem. It is only in one area. I do wear braids but have been for the better part of 20 years with absolutely no problem. Can the thinning be resolved if I go off the medication and will my hair grow back? Thank you!
This is a discussion you should clearly be having with your prescribing doctor. These medications can cause hair loss, but that does not mean that the hair loss you are experiencing is from them. You need to be evaluated by a good family doc or dermatologist for finding out the cause for your hair loss.
