Dear William,

Thank you so much for taking the time to post a question.

Co-codamol is not a medication typically associated with hair loss. I have also checked PubMed (and the scientific literature) to see if there are any rare reported cases and was able to find very little to associate the two. From what i have read and in my experience, I suspect co-codamol is not playing a role in the hair changes you describe.

Best wishes,
