Re: hair loss and weight loss/anxiety

My hair thinned when I took Zoloft... and I lost weight when I was on Zoloft... but I dont think it was my anxiety that caused it !

I am off Zoloft now, and I gained weight, and my hair is back, and its thick now !!!<p>[This message has been edited by Just-A-Boy (edited 07-21-2002).]

Re: hair loss and weight loss/anxiety

I go in and out of anxiety and one episode which lasted about 2 weeks caused me to lose about 10 lbs. I honestly had no appetite and couldn't sleep. Luckily I gained most of it back in the months following.

Re: hair loss and weight loss/anxiety

To Anxious Always. . . .
I have had panic and anxiety problems for quite a few years. I have lost a substantial amount of hair, (probably from the stress), also, my scalp itches like crazy. In the earlier years, I lost a lot of weight and a doc put me on Luvox & Tranxene. My weight came back up and I did pretty well for awhile. A few years later I seemed to have built up an immunity to the meds - or as I aged the problem got worse, and I needed a change of meds. I got so concerned I finally went to a psychiatrist. . .then the roller coaster began. I'm not saying all psychiatrist are bad - but he put me on several different meds that caused serious weight gain and I'm still dealing with it. I was never heavy in my life. I was always on the slender side, so I still don't really weigh all that much - but to me I feel like a balloon.
If you look under depression, I am on that board. Hope I've helped you to some degree.
You're not alone.

Re: hair loss and weight loss/anxiety

Hi, I'm suffering through the same thing. I'm 23 and ive lost about 15 pounds. Ive had an endoscopy and a colonoscopy done and found nothing. I'm losing so much hair, and feel so anxious because of it. People have said that it's parasites or just plain out anxiety. I just don't know, my doctors don't want to do more test because they think it's all in my head. Idk, I'm I crazy or I'm I right!!! I hate this.
