Will the hair on top of my head ever grow back?

Please can you advise if my hair loss on the top of my head will ever grow back?

I was told to stop using my PREGABLIN medication by Fibromyalgia specialist as she thought this was the cause.

But I have stopped over 5 years now and it has not grown back.

Thank you

Hair loss can be a side-effect of some medication and typically recovers within a few months of stopping the medication if this is indeed responsible. If your hair loss has persisted 5 years after stopping the medication it may be due to another cause. I would recommend you see you doctor so that a thorough history and examination can be performed to determine the cause and nature of your hair loss. Without this, it is impossible to say if it will ever grow back.
