Hair loss associated with
paroxetine treatment: a case report.
Sever J, Munitz H.
Geha Psychiatric Hospital, Petah Tiqva,
Alopecia and hair loss are rare side effects of
psychotropic drugs. There are a few case reports on hair loss associated
with tricyclic antidepressants and serotonin selective reuptake
inhibitors (SSRIs), but none deal specifically with paroxetine. We
report on a 37-year-old female who complained of moderate hair loss
during paroxetine treatment. Findings on discontinuation and rechallenge
supported the assumption that the hair loss was a side effect of the
paroxetine. Further investigation is needed to determine the scope of
this troubling side effect.
