Had undiagnosed hair loss since I was 16

Posted , 1 user is following.

My hair has been falling out at an uncontrollable rate since i was 16 ( i am now 21 ). It never falls out in clumps, but my hair gets extremely thin and falls out from all over.

The hair loss is only stopped by taking an anti anxiety tablet daily (i do not have anxiety i only take it to stop my hair fall). Doctors cannot find the link as to why this type of medication stops my hair loss. If i stop taking the medication my hair starts falling out again.

I do not want to be on anti anxiety meds for the whole life but im scared that i will go bald if i stop.

can anyone help?
