I have been taking Diethylpropion for almost 2 months. I have noticed I have lost quite of hair. The medication has been working for me and I have been losing weight but I'm VERY concerned about the hair loss. From the side effects it says you could have hair loss but its rare. I would hate to stop taking it but I can not keep losing more hair. Will this side effect go away with out stopping it? Any answers would be very appreciated!

Based on my research, I can also confirm that hair loss is listed as a possible side effect of diethylpropion. But from what I understand, these types of side effects generally do not subside until you stop taking what's causing it in the first place. Unfortunately, this would mean stopping the medication.

Apparently it is only prescribed for use on a short-term basis anyways (just a few weeks), in combination with diet, to help decrease your appetite & lose weight. So depending on whether or not you feel the benefits outweigh this side effect, you may want to consider some other alternative weight loss plans for the long run.

From what I've seen in others, often times it's not necessarily "how much" you're eating, but "what it is" that you're eating, that needs to change. That said, perhaps a dietician would be able to suggest certain lower calorie health foods (such as fruits, vegetables, nuts, seeds, etc) that you can eat more of and not face as many ramifications by doing so. Also, if you're exercising on a more frequent basis, you should be able to fit in more of the types of foods you enjoy, without having to hold onto the calories that come with them.

I hope this advice helps and wish you good luck in reaching your goals!

Hair loss with diethylproprion. I have stopped taking it and still losing hair. Will hair return and is this temporary. Can I start pills again. What else is a better solution for weight loss.
