I was diagnosed with Latent TB Infection on August 2019. I went under a treatment that involved the following medications:
The treatment lasted 12 Weeks and I took the medication once a week. Therefore I finished my treatment on December 2019.
Before the treatment, all of the side effects were discussed and nothing involved hair loss. However, after a few months of starting treatment, I had a significant hair loss overnight, yes OVERNIGHT. I had heathy full hair one day, and the next I woke up with a terrible dandruff and had lost significant amount of hair that even my friends noticed it immediately.
I let the nurse/physician know about it but they said hair loss had nothing to do with the treatment and that another external cause was the reason I was losing hair. Well, I trusted them and did not say a word about it anymore.
Now, I did my own research after a year later and it seems that ISONIAZID is an alopecia inducing medication and now my hair is not growing back as prior to the treatment. I have a receding hairline, my hair keeps falling more than it used to and it’s weak. Any remedies to grow my hair back like it used to? What can I do? Can I take legal action? Can a dermatologist help me?
I’m a Hispanic 24 yrs old male in New Mexico, USA. Thanks a lot for your help in advance.
