Lunesta and Hair Loss
Hair loss appears to be a rare complaint in people taking Lunesta® (eszopiclone). In clinical studies, hair loss was reported in less than 1 percent of people who took Lunesta. Given how common hair loss is in the general population and how rare a complaint it is in people who take Lunesta, however, it is difficult to say whether hair loss is actually caused by the medicine, genetics, other factors, or a combination of these things.
If you experience hair loss while taking Lunesta, talk with your healthcare provider. Depending on how severe the hair loss is, there are things that he or she may be able to do. If your symptoms continue to be bothersome or if your healthcare provider believes the medicine is causing your hair loss, he or she may recommend trying another insomnia treatment.
