I am female and 45. I was on Neurontin for nerve damage and most of my hair fell out quickly in clumps after being on it for about 3-4mos. I assumed the medication did it but then I had a biopsy and a diagnosis of alopecia due to either Telogen Effluvium or Andrognetic. At this point, one year later, I have very little hair and I am not sure if it is growing back or not. Do you have any thoughts on whether this is an accurate diagnosis and what my chnces are for my hair to grow back? Thanks
It is difficult to second guess your diagnosis without a proper physical examination. Neurontin may have been a factor in your hair loss. Generally when hair loss occurs due to a trigger (such as stress, hormones, drugs, age, etc) it is impossible to tell if hair will return even if the offending trigger is removed. Hair loss is not an exact science. Scientists still cannot define and pinpoint the exact cause of hair loss.
