Do proton pump inhibitors cause hair thinning & loss? I was on Lansoprazole-30mg for 1 month?

I noticed my hair falling out cause I would see it on the floor and fall on my ear and It’s easier to see my scalp even when I try to cover it with hair. I’ve been off it for 2 weeks now. Someone please tells me it grows back, I’m only 23....

Ask your doctor about using Pantoprazole instead. I have used it for years with no hair thinning affects.


That is a side effect of that drug and what I've read it's not going to come back soon. On a search engine look for "lansoprazole hair loss" to find answers
