Re: Hair Loss Citalopram/Celexa
Some people, like myself (and maybe you), are sensitive to side effects. Even if it's listed under 'rare', I still will probably get it. I've never been on Celexa, so I can't comment on that. But, I am on Prozac (another SSRI), though, and I lose hair on it, which is supposedly 'rare'. It's never really stopped, and I've been on it for a few years. Unfortunately, in my case, it's a very necessary med. However, I've done extensive reading on medical sites, and found out that this drug depletes protein and amino acids. Hair is mostly made up of protein, so I try and eat more, and that seems to help. I also take Saw Palmetto extract and that has helped alot.
