Telogen Effluvium

Telogen Effluvium is the most common form of temporary hair loss related to taking a drug or during/after an illness. It can occur within two to four months of taking a drug or after an illness or stressful event. Hair roots enter the resting state too soon, resulting in the loss of more than the typical 100-150 hairs per day. See a list of drugs that may cause hair loss.
