Ive been having manic episodes for 20 years and never lost a hair unless i pulled it out. You might watch yourself if you like to pull on your hair, most people dont realize they do it. Im sure this is not how you lose most your hair but if it already comes out easily then pulling on it probably makes things much worse.
I have a tiny bald patch in the back of my head... though, it is easily hidden. I asked my pdoc the same thing and he said that it may be because I am so stressed out all of the time. Another thing that could make you notice a lot of hair loss in the shower is if you dont brush your hair regularly or take showers frequently. I'm not saying that you are dirty. :)
My boyfriend was loosing his hair and we just figured it was genetic. He was taking rispredal at the time. He changed meds a few months ago and it seems to have stopped. I think it might even be growing back but I'm not sure yet. I'm looking for answers because he has beautiful long blonde curly hair that I love.
