I've just started to experience major hair loss on Lamictal. I've lost a ton of hair on pretty much any medication I take. Does anyone know or have any long term experience with hair loss and AED's? Is this a temporary side effect that will go away with time? I'm a female and I have almost no hair left on the lower half portion of my head - no joke. It is gross. I don't know what to do and it seems that every AED seems to have this side effect. They say that hair loss is a "rare" side effect... I seem to always get the rare ones no matter what med it is.
Does anyone know if this will subside? Any suggestions?
I am aware that hair loss is a side effect of most (if not all) AED's and from what I have read on here, it is not as rare as you might think! lol As far as I am aware, it will calm down after 6-8 weeks but it will still happen. I am on Carbamazipine and I dont have any problems.
