Metformin Cause Hair Loss?

Metformin Cause Hair Loss?

I started metformin two months ago. Since then, I've lost a lot of hair and have gained a sizeable bald spot on the back of my head.

Never had it before. Never had hair loss before. This is the only thing that's changed.

Anyone else experience hair loss on metformin?
