Elavil- Hair Loss?

Has anyone had hair loss while taking Elavil? I took it for four years for Vulvodynia :((the horrible monster!). Elavil helped my symptoms; I had major side effects but suffered through them because Vulvodynia was ruining my life.

I thought I was "cured" and got off it. It came right back within three months. I got on the Elavil again and started loosing major hair! At the time I was also on a strict diet due to IBS, had low iron (didn't know), and my thyroid (have hypothyroidism) was off level. I don't know if it was all these things I just mentioned or the Elavil. No doctor can tell me for sure. They all say "maybe".

Thank you!:)
