Hair Loss and B-12 Injection

11/26/2007

Question:

Last month I received a B-12 injection from my doctor to go along with a weight loss program. My hair is starting to break off.  Is this an effect of the injection or am I overreacting?

Answer:

This is not a reported side effect so would believe not related but ask the doctor who is providing this treatment program if they know of this complication.
