I have beeen taking Arimidex since 2005.  Recently my hair has been thinning and I have experienced significant hair loss.  Is this related to Arimidex.  How long must one take Arimidex?

Dear Danicp:  Hair loss is not a common side effect of arimidex, though some women have noted thinning.  If this is a new symptom and you have been on arimidex since 2005, it may not be due to the drug.  You might check with your doctor to see what other possible explanations may exist.  In most cases, arimidex is prescribed for 5 years.
