Stool softener made my hair fall out
Dr prescribed 2 stool softener daily and said it would take about a year to start having regular bowel moments. I was slow to realize it was making my hair fall out by the hand full. Had blood test to check thyroid and other hormones every thing was normal. One day it dawned on me that my hair problem started about two weeks into taking the pills. Been off for three days now and hair has slowed down from falling out. Has any one had this problem and do you think my hair will start to grow back
