hair loss from meds??
Sep 27, 2001

I was wondering i am on viracept and combivir since Feb 99. (undetectible, ts 588) it seems my hair is slowly falling out is this due to the meds? or some stress?

Response from Dr. Feinberg

I've seen this in some patients also, and am sorry to tell you that I don't think there is a clear answer. I've had some patients say that their hair falls out when their viral load is poorly controlled.
