I just turned 50 in December. I was ill with depression and anxiety last year and I was put on Fluoxetine, 40 mg per day. I still don't know if it's the medication or the menopause that is causing my hair loss. I notice it more when brushing, styling, or even washing my hair. I have not had my hair cut or trimmed over the last 12 months. Do you think having a good cut would help?

Did you know?

You won’t get the menopause the minute you turn 50! The average starting age is actually between 45 and 55 and it can often depend on a number of factors including hereditary, weight and health, however every single woman will have an individual menopause.
