This answer was rated:

whar do you think is best, XXXXX XXXXX Lilly-Fluoxetine. I did very well on Lilly but started losing my hair, I do not know why. So do you think Lexamil is a better choice?

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 :

Lexamil (escitalopram) also causes hair loss in 0.75% of users, but once again it may not be the only cause of their hair loss.

Elliott, LPCC, NCC :

If you are doing will with the fluoxetine then stick with it.

Elliott, LPCC, NCC :

Lexamil has more side effects.than fluoxetine, generally.

Customer:

Thank You, XXXXX XXXXX will then stick with Lilly. I do feel very good when using Lilly, but I am Still afraid of the sidee effects! people can make u feel very nevious about using these drugs and the side effects of these drugs. Lilly really makes me feel VERY good exept for loosing my hair (not very much, but I can see it).

Elliott, LPCC, NCC :

You can always quit if you feel you are losing too much and try something different, namely bupropion.

Elliott, LPCC, NCC :

In the meanwhile stick with the fluoxetine if it is working.

Elliott, LPCC, NCC :

I will keep you in my prayers.

Customer:

Wiil do so. thank you!!

Elliott, LPCC, NCC :

You are very welcome.
