Actually, I saw several reviews on the drugs and meds page of Web MD that mentioned hair loss. Also find it listed on the side efects of the patient information that came with my prescription for Aldendronate. No hair loss before taking it so seems like it must be the culprit!

Not saying it can't happen. I'm saying I've not heard it mentioned by any of our patients.

Hair loss is not something we've heard.
