I've been having a lot of hair loss for a few weeks now...I can't remember exactly when it started. I'm losing a LOT. My hair did thicken quite dramatically when I was pregnant, so it could be that I'm still losing some of the glorious pregnancy hair. However, if it doesn't stop/slow down soon, I'm afraid I'll start to look bald.
I know that Asacol can cause hair loss, but I also know that being as sick as I was can cause hair loss (I had D 15-20 times a day at my most sick and lost weight quite rapidly).
Have any of you experienced hair loss due to Asacol and/or a severe flare?
If it was due to Asacol, did it ever stop or slow down?
Symptoms began in November 2008, ~4 weeks after giving birth to my son.
Eased for ~3 weeks in December, possibly b/c of probiotic use?
Returned in January 2009 (with a vengeance), diagnosed with pancolitis on January 30.
Currently taking Asacol (400mg 4 pills 3x daily), Rowasa nightly, Culturelle probiotic, and Zoloft (25 mg).
