    Hair loss is listed as a side effect of these medications, but it´s said to occur to less than 1% of people. Has anyone taken these and experienced hair loss? They include:

    • Axid
      Pepcid
      Tagamet
      Zantac
      Prevacid
      Prilosec
      Zegerid

    I used Prevacid for almost 10 years and although I have alopecia, it didn't cause my hair loss. My hair loss started about 5 years before starting Prevacid. Although, it now makes me wonder if it made it progress faster. Unfortunately, the hair loss that I've experienced is permanent and regrowth wont happen.
