Hi I am 5 weeks into treatment for hypothyrodism and am taking 50mg of levothyroxin! Today I am experiencing massive hair loss - and I mean handfuls at a time (my hair was unaffected by being hypo and I was not losing prior to medication! My gp has told me it am the only person he has seen with this side effect and there are no alternatives available to me! I am also ferritin deficient so have just started taking iron 3 times a day!
Has anyone else experienced excess hair loss and if so how long for - does it get better?
