Does agomelatine cause hair loss?

Hair loss is not a known side effect of agomelatine. While some medications can cause hair loss as a side effect, there is no evidence to suggest that agomelatine is associated with this side effect.

However, it is important to note that hair loss can have many different causes, including genetics, hormonal imbalances, and certain medical conditions. If an individual is experiencing hair loss or any other concerning changes in hair growth or appearance, they should speak with their healthcare provider. The healthcare provider can help determine the underlying cause of the hair loss and recommend appropriate treatment options.

It is also important to follow all instructions for taking agomelatine and report any concerning side effects or changes in mood or behavior to a healthcare provider.

There are various forms of drugs available, such as tablets or liquids, and each may have a separate patient information leaflet (PIL) for different doses. It is important to refer to the PIL for the specific form and dose of the drug that you have been prescribed.
