Do men who experience male pattern baldness also have body hair loss?

Usually not. The form of testosterone, known as dihydrotestosterone, that causes male pattern baldness is also reponsible for causing hair growth in other areas, like the beard area. Sounds like a paradox.

Will starting metformin increase my hair loss? I have PCOS and suffer from male pattern baldness and gradual thinning. I am desperate to find a solution for my hair, which was once very very thick, but also want to lose weight. (I'm 5'4 and 149)

It could. There's nothing in the medical literature about this specifically, but many participants in online forums date the onset of hair loss to the treatment with metformin. It is also not very effective for weight loss, unless you are diabetic. It may well be that you have a progesterone deficiency and that supplementing the progesterone would decrease your hair loss. Ask your doctor to test for this. Read more...

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.
