I was taking Lipodrene for weight loss and it contains ephedrine group alkaloids in it. I have been losing my hair and it is getting to be a problem. I have stopped taking the Lipodrene but when will my hair stop falling out? What can I do to stop this? Help !!!!!!
We have answered similar questions in regards to ephedrine and pseudoephedrine and hair loss as their side effects. Although hair loss is not reported as a common side effect of these medications, it is mentioned in some websites (such as Bodybuilding.com) which go over side effects of bodybuilding medications. The mechanism of hair loss with these medications is not quite clear. Hair loss should be reversible after discontinuation of ephedrine with time. I am not aware of any studies indicating how long before recovering from this condition if it occurs.
