Women who lose hair while taking birth
control pills usually have an inherited tendency toward hair thinning. If hair
thinning occurs, a woman can consult her doctor about switching to another
birth control pill or another contraceptive method.
When a woman
stops using oral contraceptives, her hair may begin shedding 2 or 3 months
later. This may continue for 6 months and then it usually stops.
Blood thinners called warfarin and heparin.
Arthritis medicines, such as indomethacin.
Seizures medicines, such
as valproic acid, carbamazepine, and trimethadione.
such as allopurinol and colchicine.
