Hair loss and Nexium

Is there anyone who has had hair loss from taking Nexium? I've been on PPI's for many years now. I'm wondering if long term affects of Nexium could cause this. My blood tests are all normal including thyroids and b12 levels, iron is low but coming up but I'm still experiencing major loss. My regular doctor says it is unlikely and a dermatologist who specializes in hair loss says genetics. The dermatologist didn't mention the Nexium at all. I'm experiencing overall thinning and pattern baldness where a man would recede. The women in my family have no baldness issues but my father did. I think I'm almost ready to accept that this is genetics but there is a small part of me that thinks it still could be the Nexium. Nexium works very well for m (40mg 1x a day) for GERD. So I wanted to know if anyone here has had this be the cause or if you know someone who did.
Thanks so much!
