It is kind of strange for your hair to fall out, especially since you are taking a very low dose of Zyprexa. I think that is one of the side effects of the medicine, but it is more common when taking Depakote. You should definety talk to your pdoc about, and see what can be done about it.

I started Depakote in March and Zyprexa in Apr and the hair on the front of my head has become very thin.  I also take 5 mg of Zyprexa.
