I'm not on Arimidex but am on Femara (which is also an aromatase inhibitor like Arimidex) and my hair is definitely coming out more than normal. It's driving me a bit nuts. I have a lot of thick italian hair and it's not coming out quite as much as when I had CMF chemo but enough to clog the drain and be annoying.

I think it's our bodies adjusting to a new level of estrogen...or lack of estrogen I should say. My onc says he has patients that mention it but no one who got to a point where it is noticable.
