the first time I was on lexapro, I had no hair loss.

2 years later, it's coming out in clumps.  OK I had a baby 5 months ago, this also purportedly *can* make your hair fall out, and there is significant stress.  BUT the hair loss did not begin until I started lex again.

so I'm wondering have any of you experienced major hair loss with lexapro, is this just the hormones from pregnancy, some suggestions from anyone on how long it might last would be nice.

I just went to the salon and they told me to buy a wig.  'puke.

Hmmm...I thought the post partum hair loss was because hair growth is stimulated by pregnancy, and then goes back to its pre-pregancy growth pattern. The "extra" hair falls out eventually and is not replaced.

I had that to some extent, but was never advised to wear a wig.

I have been on lexapro for almost a year now and have not had hair loss, but YMMV.

Is your diet ok? Is your physical health compromised in any way? Do you think it could be stress?

I wish I could be more helpful. I hope it stops soon.
