Customer Question
I am loosing my...

I am loosing my hair-I have been taking Celexa 20 MG for several years-If I stop Celexa to see if that might be the cause-can I stop abruptly or taper?

Doctor's Assistant: What medications do you take daily? Are you allergic to any medications?

Simvastin smallest dose-no others -other than Celexa I also want to know if my hair might come back any-other wise I will just stay as I am-I am 74 and extremely healthy otherwise

I'm sorry you are having this problem

Make sure you get your thyroid checked too.

I would reduce to 10 mg for 2 weeks then stop

is this helpful?

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.
