Lithium and Hair Loss
Having too much fun so the Docs here prescribed me lithium at 600 mg daily…of course my question to you is does lithium have any potential side effects regarding hair loss???
Simply put, yes… Lithium and other antidepressants and antipsychotic drugs are known to contribute or to cause hair loss.
I have always had thick wirey hair. I took Lithium for 6 days in early May but my hair continues to thin on top. Its now August and it is still thinning. The hair is said to return after 2 months of discontinuing Lithium.
