I have now tapered from 60 mg to 2.5 mg and the worst side effect I have ever had is a new one for me. I am a female and I am losing my hair. I have had to cut it a ton. I was blonde and now I am brunette because of the coloring damage that happens. My drs just nod their heads and say we just need to get you off of this. I read online about some people losing 75% or more of their hair. I may be that person before this is over with.
