Hi, does anybody else have hair loss while on HU. I've been taking it for just over a year now, and along with dry skin etc etc I have lost quite a bit of hair. My parting is getting wider! As I've been told I'll probably be on it for life (however long that may be!) I'm worried I may lose all of it. I know that hair loss is insignificant if the drug is keeping me well and my platelet count down, but I don't have to like the side effects! I have changed my hair style, having it cut shorter so I can get volume into it, but it is getting more noticeable, a "friend" commented on it the other day.
