Hair loss from medication

I would like to know how long does i take for medication that kill hair follicle to get out of your system? I was told that once all of that medication is out of your system your hair will start to grow back, Is this true?

If a drug is causing telogen effluvium then once it is removed from the body hair regrowth should resume. How quickly a drug is removed from the body depends on the drug. Some are rapidly metabolized and may be gone in a matter of hours. Others are much more slowly metabolized.

Hi Kevin:
Hello. I had three operations in six months (I had my face and arms fixed from a car accident, so I'm not sick with a disease or anything) in late 1998 and early to mid 99) and more than half my hair has fallen out and I just stopped shedding last August(00). My hair has not grown back at all. My dermatolgist says that it is TE from the surgery and car accident but he also thinks that me ferratin is too low and that is why the hair has not come back yet. In Oct..I began iron threapy with C my ferratin was 10, and as of last week it is 50. When do you think hair normally grows back after being operated on so much and low iron? I surely would appreciate your response. Have a nice day. BTW, I'm 34 years old.

Hi, I'm new to this fourm. I have been losing hair for a while now and just started noticing how much every day. I have pitulitary problems and am now being checked for thyroid. My scalp is sore and itchy, but not that itchy. I made an appointment to see a dermotologist but the only appointment I could get is march 1st. She did put me on a waiting list though. Any advise would be appreciated. Thanks

To all of you who are or have suffered with hair loss due to medication, I just want to let you know that I know it is very frustrating. I took Depakote and it caused my hair to fall out. I will advise anyone not to take Depakote. I even called the company who makes Depakote (Abbott Company) to get some answers regarding this tragedy and they were very shady. They did not want to spill to much info. and did state that Depakote commonly causes hair loss. I asked them some questions on how and why and if it will grow back. They would not give me a straight answer, probably for their legal reasons.

Lousy bastards are protecting their ass. I too have drug induced loss from surgery and I want answers too. You hear about how drug induced hair loss is temporary, but I'm beginning to wonder as I have waited for my hair to grow back after a year and a half. I'm on iron too, without much result.

Has anyone heard of hair loss from taking Ambien,
a sleeping tablet? After being on it for serveral months my hair starting falling out. My GYN said it was hormonal and I was getting old and get used to it. I wanted to slap her face!
I've always had people stop and ask what products I use on my hair because it's so shiny and thick.
Now I can see the top of my scalp.

Did your hair loss begin abruptly? How much are you loosing per day? What else has happened in your life in the past several months? Any surgeries, shock, weight loss, bcp,low serum ferratin, thyroid, etc?
Did your doc take blood tests that revealed anything that can back up her statement that you're loss is hormonal, or is she just assuming? Knowing must docs the way they are, I'm assuming it's the latter--lol.

Your GYN sounds like an insensitive ***hole.I'm sorry to hear you had to go through that.
