Does Seroquel Cause Hair Loss Or Thinning?

I have been taking seroquel for major depression for about two months. Soon after starting the drug I could not manage my hair. It was just behaving different than usual. I started to notice lots of hair on my vanity and in my hair brushes. I take 300mg at night.

Hi there

I don't see this listed as a possible side effect but it doesn't mean it doesn't exist. Have you spoken with your doctor about your hair loss? Are you taking any other medications?

I have seen people on forums saying that they felt it did cause hair loss and you can read for yourself on this drugs.com forum about the side effects of Seroquel.

I would definitely let your doctor know that this is happening. Thank you for your question.
