I'm 61, aside from a little arthritis I am fit & healthy. Taking 40mg of Pravastatin (switched from Simvistatin about 4 months ago due to Pravastatin's lower cost). Last few months I have become increasingly upset about what seems to be significant hair thinning. I never had thick hair, but I don't think I'm imagining a very noticeable thinning; more hair in the sink, less on my head, especially around the front top. My only other Rx is a weekly (generic) Fosomax which I've taken for many years. I know hair loss is a rare but occasionally reported side effect with some statins. I didn't seem to suffer this under the previous statin; could the Pravastatin be the cause?
