My Doctor put me on Metformin for Type 2 Diabetes I am experiencing hair loss. Has anyone had hair loss while on Metformin? What can be done?

When I first went on levothyroxin for hypothyroidism, I lost a lot of hair. It upset me a lot. I cried every time I brushed or washed my hair and was afraid it wouldn't stop until it was all gone. It took several mos,but my body finally adjusted and now it is growing back. It is listed on the papers right at the top that this med can cause hair loss and when my dosage doubled, the hair loss got worse. All you can do is ride it out til it grows back. I take biotin to encourage it to grow. Don't know if it helps, but it doesn't hurt.
