Hair Loss

Hair Loss

I was wondering if anybody on here takes lamitcal and experienced hair loss?

A MyEpilepsyTeam Member said:

Yes! it's also done strange things to my nails. They are very brittle. The finger nails are square and flat, toenails curled down at end ( big toes ) skin hair and nails are all related. My hair is so thin now the scar on my head is showing through. I know it's seems very petty and selfish to others when there are so many problems in this world but when I went to see a hairdresser the results made my day and I felt so much better. Now I don't even bother going

Yes! I used to have really thick hair and it has thinned out so much ☹️☹️ It's a shame it's one of the only meds that seems to work for me!

I didn't realise Keppra did that as well. I'm on both, I guess that would be why it's happening so badly ☹️
