I have been on Depakote ER for some time. And just recently found out that the Depakote that I have been taking for my Epilepsy is what could be causing my hair loss. Has anyone else had this problem?
I added folic acid supplements to counter thinning hair. Takes several months before new hair was visible but all my hair is back. B Complex too
Along with biotin take folic acid 2x day, in a month you will see new hair growth. Eat clean, reduce sugars from your meal/snacks.
I take Epilim and my neurologist mentioned hair loss as a side effect when I first started taking it (20 years ago). Though, he said as I was a teenage girl with thick hair, it'd probably just thin out. My hair did thin out quite a lot, but as my body got used to taking the medication, my hair went back to its normal thick self. It wasn't until I was well into my 20s that it went back to normal, but it could be a temporary, albeit lengthy, side effect.
