Gabapentin Neurontin & Pregabalin Lyrica FDA-approved gabapentin label includes the ambiguous term “hair disorder.” For those that believe that Lyrica / pregabalin does not have known hair loss side effects on the label, I encourage them to see p.19 in the FDA-approved pregabalin prescribing information which includes “alopecia” (medical term for hair loss) under side effects.

Treatment & Evaluation for Gabapentin Pregabalin and don’t have to choose between pain and hair! Significant improvements in hair growth can be achieved with today’s powerful treatments without having to stop the medication.

However, it is important that any patient with medication side-effect related hair loss undergo a complete consultation and workup to determine any underlying causes or risks for the hair loss symptom by an ABHRS-certified and IAHRS-accepted Hair Restoration Physician with experience and expertise in diagnosis and treatment of medication-related hair loss and hair shedding. At Bauman Medical, Dr. Alan Bauman performs scientific scalp and hair loss/hair growth evaluations with the HairCam microscope, HairCheck Trichometer and standardized photography to measure, document and track these changes over time—either with or without hair regrowth treatments.
