Hair loss and abilify withdrawal

Patient: My doctor has started titrating me off abilify (started at 10mg, down by 2mg a week, now I’m at 4mg) but my hair has started falling out in large clumps. Is this normal? How long will it last? Should I be going back up on the medication?

 

 

Symptoms: Hair loss
