I have been taking Omaprosole(prilosec) and now having hair loss. I am sure this has happened to others. I see it is one of the side effects.

I am wondering, if one gets off of this, will hair grow back??

I'm sure the hair loss is temporary. Meanwhile was your hair in tea tree oil shampoo. It will thicken it.

Hair loss with Prilosec seems to have happened rarely. Are you taking any other meds? Menopause? Low iron? I would be eliminating all the possible causes. You might want to ask an endocrinologist about hair loss. Also you could ask your GI doc to maybe switch you to a different acid reducer.
