apparently (per dr. "search engine", lol) it can be a side effect of the zoloft, though not really common. My concern is that they are dosing on weight, are they using "live" wt? If so, has she gained any muscle/bone wt, or is it all/most fat? Fat is NOT live weight. Good luck.
My daughter was hospitalize in the summer. Stopped eating. Long story short. Diagnosed celiac by biopsy. Also OCD. Put on Zoloft. Helped a lot. While she was severely malnourished her hair started to fall out. Once she went gluten free and started gaining weight the hair loss stopped. It's now a couple months later. She's gaining weight and doing really well. Her hair was thick and bealthy again All of a sudden her hair is coming out in huge handfuls. She's freaking out. It's noticeably thinner. Called doc today but haven't heard back. A couple weeks ago her Zoloft was upped as she has gained weight and is bigger. This is the only thing I can think of that's different. She's so upset and rather fragile mentally to begin with. Any thoughts as to whether the meds could do this?
