Why do the test?: Lexapro is not a substance of abuse and there would be no medical reaso to test a hair for Lexapro or its metabolites. Wish you good health! - Have a diet rich in fresh vegetables, fruits, whole grains, milk and milk products, nuts, beans, legumes, lentils and small amounts of lean meats. Avoid saturated fats. Drink enough water daily, so that your urine is mostly colorless. Exercise at least 150 minutes/week and increase the intensity of exercise gradually. Do not use tobacco, alcohol, weed or street drugs in any form. Practice safe sex, if you have sex. Get HPV vaccine, if you are under 27 years of age.

See a dermatologist: Spironolactone never causes hair loss. The other 2 are not likely causes. See a dermatologist for a definition of the type of hair loss.
