Hi all. Know this is an old thread I have dug out, but relevant to my issues. Have suffered extreme hairloss last 6months, this week my GP has taken me off ezetrol and simvastatin statins. He has replaced these with Bezafibrate to get my lipids down, as results came in as way too high 8.6% clearly the statins were'nt doing the job! :thumbdown: Only found out about extreme hair loss caused by statins on this thread!!!! Will raise this point up with 'doc' next time I see him. My hair is now HALF the thickness it used to be! So fine and cut into a short bob :evil: He never warned nor explained this hair loss to me despite me taking the statins. Anna.
