Ok so I'm taking this pill.. It's been about 10 days and I'm getting some hair loss.. Is this drug known for hair loss as a side effect??? Or am I crazy? Lol
Does Doxycycline Hyclate 100 Mg Cause Hair Loss?

Doxycycline and hair loss
There are many factors that can affect hair growth - nutrition, surgery, anemia or low iron stores, thyroid imbalances, collagen vascular disease, just to name a few. It would be unlikely that 10 days of Doxycycline would cause hair loss. There are reports of hair loss with doxycycline treatment, but hair loss is not a usual side effect of doxycycline. I suggest you see your health care provider for full workup of hair loss.
