have been taking Lamisil for 2 months now and that past week I have been losing hair in clumps. I read on the net that this is an all too common side effect. I wanted to see if you knew if my hair would grow back after I stop taking it. If so then I may suffer through one more month to never have to take it again. I am a 31 year old male
Lamisil is often used in the treatment of fungal diseases of the skin, such as ringworm (when impacting the scalp it is called Tinea Capitis). These infections often cause hair loss and if you use Lamisil for treatment of the primary cause of the hair loss (Tinea Capitis) then it is easy to assume that it is the drug causing the thinning, but this is not usually true. From my research on the subject, Lamisil only rarely can be correlated with hair loss (one to one relationship).
