Q: Can Arimidex result in hair loss?
I have been on Arimidex for almost two years and I am now experiencing hair loss. Is that a side effect of Arimidex?
Yes it is, unfortunately. Since your body is being deprived of so much estrogen by the Arimidex, it affects your hair. Once you stop taking it, hopefully your hair will rebound; though each woman reacts differently, so there's no guarantee. This darned drug has lots of unexpected side effects, doesn't it? At least it's helping prevent the cancer form coming back... Good luck - PJH
Ive used Arimidex for 30 months and I haven't loss any hair other than the few strand's that come out when I comb my hair!!
