Do Men Who Experience Male Pattern Baldness Also Have Body Hair Loss
Hair loss, otherwise known as alopecia, can be caused by different reasons, including damage to the hair shaft or follicles or fungal infections. There are two main types of alopecia.

With alopecia areata, hair can fall out in patches all over the body. With androgenetic alopecia, hair on the head first thins and then falls out. In men, this is called male pattern hair loss; in women, it is called ...Read more

Male pattern baldnes: Male pattern baldness in a female sounds really odd. I don't know how you got that diagnosis but it sounds to me like you should go see an endocrinologist and bring with you any test results of things that you already have done to you. You live in LA.

Can zyprexa, haldol, (haloperidol) or Prozac cause hair loss? I was already experiencing male pattern baldness but it has sped up and thinning. Maybe stress or oil?
Psych meds hair loss: Hair loss can occur rarely with prozac. After the drug is stopped it will usually grow back but there are times where it can be permanent. Haldol (haloperidol) causes hair thinning on a rare occasion. One out of every 100 to 1, 000 people on zyprexa will experience some degree of hair loss. Even over the counter drugs such as Cimetidine and ranitidine can do the same. I recommend that you discuss discuss this issue with your treatment provider and also get a dermatologic consultation. ...Read more
