I stopped taking gabapentin due to hair loss;however after stopping it, I am still experiencing hair loss. When will it stop if indeed the hair loss is due to gabapentin?
I do not have any experience with this drug. Stopping it and switching it with another epileptic drug under your doctor’s direction would be the proper thing to do. You must wait it out. Neurontin (gabapentin)’s rare side effects list (see RXList.com) does include “hair disorder” — I suppose this could mean hair loss.
Generally, effluviums will last less than a year when the offending drug stops being used. Women will need a proper medical workup for hair loss. For more, see WebMD – Telogen Effluvium and Other Effluviums.
