The only medication I am on is Ventolin.  Try to use it only once or twice a day.  For the past few months I've noticed a lot of hair loss.  Hair loss is not included in possible side affects of Ventolin. 

Just wondering if anyone else has noticed hair loss and is on Ventolin.

Could just be age of course!

    Hair loss can be related to thyroid as well as pre-diabetes , both easily checked with bloodwork.

    Let us know how you make out if you have the tests done!
