    In the response to a question, Blake Bloxham wrote:

    “For example, several types of SSRIs list hair loss as a “rare” side effect that occurs in approximately 1-2% of users. Even more encouraging, many see a reversal of the hair loss after stopping the medication. This is, however, not guaranteed – as many drugs “unmask” dormant permanent types of alopecia like androgenic alopecia (“male pattern baldness”). In these cases, the hair loss is not reversible. In these instances, however, it’s important to understand that the drug only revealed or accelerated an underlying condition; it did not actually cause a primary hair loss.”

    What scientific evidence out there supports his conclusion? How can antidepressant-induced hair loss (TE) unmask androgenic alopecia? It doesn’t make sense to me.
