Can Forteo Cause Thinning Of Hair Or Hair Loss?

I have been taking Forteo for 18 months. I have had no severe side effects and seem to have tolerated it well. However, I have noticed that I am losing a significant amount of my hair. I have probably lost about 1/3 of my hair (volume not in spots) over the past year or two. I am wondering if this could be caused by the Forteo.

Hi Again... I just noticed a link here at the OsteoporosisConnection on thinning hair and hair loss products ranked by popularity and positive results. The link is above, if you would like to read it. I'm going to look into them myself since this is something that's driving me crazy Hopefully this will help in some way and good luck again. PF
