How likely is it to cause hair loss and is the hair loss it may have caused reversible?

I have been on Geodon for about two years and my hair is coming out in handfuls. I have 5 baggies of hair so I'm going to see if I can get off of it because I read one of the studies was for my age group (47) said there was severe hair loss but no answer as if it would stop or not after discontinuation

I can't say for sure but I have never heard of Geodon causing hair loss.  I have been taking Geodon for years and still have a full head of hair.  That probably didn't help too much.  Sorry.

I just looked up side effects for it and there was nothing that said hair loss.  I see my pdoc next Tues. and I will ask him.

D'oh! I'm sorry no one answered. I've never been on it, and don't know anything about it but thought I'd bump it to the top again :)
