Hope you can find a satisfactory solution. You've already done everything I thought of including the biotin. Good Luck!

Hoping someone here will tell me the hair loss will stop with time. Not one of the more frequent side effects so I don't know how much response I will get. I have looked at some other blogs/boards on the web. Some of those people are so doofy that I find them hard to believe. I don't find much (or even any) doofiness here so far.

If the hair loss doesn't stop with time, I will stop the med. Just upped my biotin, selenium and zinc. Maybe that will put the brakes on the hair loss.

I have been on Cymbalta 45 days now.

I sure have. Thyroid is fine. I am very sure it is the Cymbalta but I feel so good I don't want to stop taking it. I don't want to be bald either! I have tried all the other meds.

Lyrica made my vision blurry. I don't mess with my eyesight so that med was out. Neurontin made my eye lids twich. Again, I don't mess with my eyes, so that med was out. Neither med really helped the pain anyway. I am having wonderful results with Cymbalta and needling therapy. I am even planning on gong back to horseback riding lessons this Friday after being out since April of 2012. However, I believe the Cymbalta is making my hair fall out. I don't know what to do. emoticon Any thoughts?
