Alopecia (hair loss) is a known side effect of simvastatin.

10 yrs. ago I took Zorcor 80mg, switched to generic simvastatin when it came out, w/no side effects until 2 yrs ago when my fingernails started cracking lengthwise along the ridges. (Biotin did not help.) 6 months ago I started losing head hair w/o pattern. The loss has increased. PCP doesn't believe the alopeca is related. I will titrate down & discontinue for a month and see what happens. Anyone else w/long term integamentary system side effects?
