methadone and hair loss, does it make you lose your hair
I have been on methadone for 7 years and have been tapering off for nearly 3 years, down to 2mgs/day now. About 2 1/2 years ago I lost a LOT of hair and it has not grown back, this is so upsetting, any thoughts? My iron was low and I have been supplementing it for a long time now and it is in the normal range and is being absorbed so that cannot be my problem, I was hoping it would grow back with the iron supplement, this is devastating

I have never heard of opiates causing you to lose hair.

Thank you for responding, I have heard of people losing hair when they are taking opiates, just wondered how methadone reacts in the body
