Anybody witness hair shedding more while taking citalopram? Or could it just be because of anxiety

    I went on birth control before clexa and my hair was falling out like crazy. I want to say it stopped happening as much once I started anxiety medication. Apparently birth control can add extra anxiety so maybe your theory about anxiety causing hair loss is true, haha. I started taking women’s one a day vitamins, a hairdresser told me when your body isn’t getting all the stuff it needs it stops proving for the hair first. I am the type to stop eating when I get too anxious so that could be the case, too. Either way, I wish you luck!

      I’ve been taking vitamins! But idk what’s happening lol, I think I’ll start to add Biotin to my daily supplements and see if that can help me out! Maybe change my diet too cause I tend to eat junk lol.

      I’ve heard biotin is great for hair and nails, and changing your diet will also help with anxiety! I take ginger tablets every now and then when I have an upset stomach and I find my anxiety isn’t as bad those days. I don’t take it every day though, not sure what the effect would be lol.
