I am 31 and I have grown some Grey hair in the middle of my scalp and also a few in the beard. This has happened just this year. What could be the reason I'm on Prozac (fluoxetine) 40mg for anxiety. I'm worried.

Pre-mature graying: It is believed that hair turning white is caused by the production of hydrogen peroxide in the hair follicle. While stress can do many many things, there has been no direct linkage that I know of correlating one with the other. Read more
