Your hair loss is probably due to the intake of testosterone pills. Firstly, stop taking the medication, if the condition still not improving, then go for PRP (platelet rich plasma) treatment. You need to consult a plastic surgeon to know about this treatment.

Hi does topomax cause hair loss (thinning hair)? I was on it five years ago for migraine and most of my hair but unknown to me, I also had stage 3 thyroid cancer. I was treated for my cancer and anemia and have my hair back:) Once again, the doctor wants me on topomax for treatment of severe migraines. Hence, my question- was it the thyroid cancer, or anemia that caused the hair loss(almost baldness) or was it Topomax? Thank you kindly!
