> And just when I thought I had the Topamax dosage set (50mg am, 50 pm) keeping headaches at a minimum and hairloss stable...Doc adds Zantac to the mix for lousy GERD stomach problem (already taking Protonix) and whammo---more hair down the drain! Just took my shower and sad to say, handfuls came out. Now I'm depressed (isn't that what the Wellbrutrin is for?--actually I've heard that adds to hairloss, too) I'm really getting tired of the cures being worse than the disease..... Too many pills!! I think it may be time to stop them all and start all over again. (Of course after the first 3 day migraine I'll be begging for mercy!!)
> Sorry for the "whining"--can deal with the stomach acting up again but the hairloss deal sends me over the top!!!

I just found this post... and have to mention that there are meds that help with the side effects that attack the stomach... one that really helps is Serc (says she not sure what it is that affects your stomach... but I have an awful time with abdominal pain, stomach cramps, and nausea thanks to dear old Tegretol... and serc really does help... tried the domperden and it helped with the tingling in the hands but caused even worse stomach cramps and abdominal pain and threw in diarrhoea which I do not need... have been off it for almost two weeks and still trying to rid myself of the side effects that accompany it...
apparently it takes up to three months to get some of these things out of the system...
oh joy!!!)

The Serc really helps though...

and I have found that there is a shampoo that helps with hair loss threats but I forget the name... will ask my hair stylist, she is the one who mentioned it...

it may help some of you...

and shampooing less frequently may help too ... we have become a society of daily shampooers ... something that was not the norm even thirty years ago...

there has to be a solution here...
