will I loose my hair when using Lilly-Fluoxetine

Elliott, LPCC, NCC :

Seeking expert counseling is a sign of strength. A personal relationship with a caring professional is proven clinically effective.

Elliott, LPCC, NCC :

Dear friend,

Elliott, LPCC, NCC :

I believe that I can help.

Elliott, LPCC, NCC :

Fluoxetine (widely sold as Prozac) has listed hair loss as a RARE side effect.

Elliott, LPCC, NCC :

About 1% of users report some mild hair loss, but all of this is not necessarily due to the fluoxetine.

Elliott, LPCC, NCC :

It is a condition that is usually not permanent.

Elliott, LPCC, NCC :

If you are experiencing hair loss and wish to quite the fluoxetine, you can wean off of it, following your doctor's directions.

Elliott, LPCC, NCC :

If you are not losing hair, and the fluoxetine is helping to ease your depression, then continue using it and worry no more.
