Hope everyone is well! I haven't been here for quite awhile. I was content to just deal with what I thought (and unsure of now) is CTE. I had mentioned previously, I had started trazodone in June of 2015 and exactly a month later my hair was shedding. It was horrible clumps of hair being lost from July-December. It let up one random day and than kicked back into shedding in high amounts. I was diagnosed having TE initially by a derm (caused by stress. ) than another "hair loss specialist" said it was CTE caused by stress OR might be Androgenetic Alopecia. So 18 months later...my hair is still falling out. Wanting some validation (and some questions answered) I made an appointment with Dr.Donovan in Vancouver (who I heard great things about.) First of all, he was very educated and kind. He did answer all of my questions. He did actually look at my scalp. BUT...I find it so hard to believe his diagnosis. He claimed I had CTE and Female pattern balding. I know for a fact I would NEVER have had hair loss if I had never taken the trazodone. If I could go back in time and undo the damage...I would! I wouldn't be where I am now. How I could end up with FPB from taking trazodone is crazy to me! Plus...he indicated "it was happening slowly and unnoticed but the CTE made it more apparent." What?! I had enough hair for 3 people! I was a shedder but I wasn't experiencing Androgenetic Alopecia prior to June of 2015! I had a known trigger. I get CTE but not Androgenetic Alopecia. I'm still confused and it pisses me off that I'm going through this. I often feel like the only person experiencing this...until I come back to these forums to read endless stories. Of course, his first suggestion is using rogaine. Something I avoided. I guess my question...(which might remain unanswered) is has anyone here read or heard OR even experienced CTE that appeared or was diagnosed as Androgenetic Alopecia only to fully recover?
