Re: could seroquel or effexor be causing my hairloss?

I started loosing my hair, on my legs and chest, last year when I had started Effexor XR.

I thought it was the Effexor and stopped immediately, and my hair started growing back. Again this year, I started loosing my hair. This time I wasn't on any medication.

I've come to the conclusion that both times it was a combination of anxiety and the time of the year. My psychiatrist agreed that it was probably from anxiety and not the medication.

Effexor increased my anxiety.

I also 'crash' every October-November - Seasonal affective Dissorder - and that might explain I noticed it, both times, in November.

I now take supplements that I got from the Health Store. They're called LifeTime Supreme Vital Hair.

You might want to try taking a multi-vitamin, and getting off the SSRIs or adding an anti-anxiety med.
