Long term use of Nexium and Hair Loss

Has anyone experienced this? I've had 4 doctors tell me it isn't likely. I tried changing Nexium but it simply works the best for me. My B12 levels are great but stores are low. I am on a supplement for that as well as vitamins. Has anyone else experienced this?

Re: Long term use of Nexium and Hair Loss

I don't know about Nexium but I can tell you FOR SURE that Prevacid will do that. I have lost plenty of hair each time I take that. I go on and off of it because I hate losing my hair. It just thins out. In my opinion ALL the acid reflux meds have side effects and hair loss it one of them. Don't panic, but I can assure you that it is the med that is doing it. Good luck! Feel better!
