Default Hair Loss

I am at a loss, literally. Has anyone heard/experienced hair loss in conjunction with Welchol? I have so many health problems and am on so many drugs that it seems that no one is sure what exactly is making my hair fall out. This seems a little fishy to me.

yes i took six pills a day for 3 months and now have noticed my hair line is receeding in the front in a weird pattern. i am a hair dresser and typically hair loss starts in the front and the temples but is usually rnadom whereas mine is in a wierd 1 1/2 inch spot just right of the center of my hairline i have not noticed more hair in the shower which is also common with typical hair loss.

I too have been taking Welchol, started taking this on March 7th. of 08. Taking 6-pills a day, after only about a month, started noticing huge amounts of hair falling out. I have now been on this drug for over 6-months and have decided at this time to stop using it. I'm not sure if this is the reason of my hair loss but I am going to try staying off of Welchol for a few months to see if the hair loss stops.
