My hair is increaded in loss from when it did from radiation. Has anyone experienced hair loss from Temodar? I was told it would not happen.

The only side effect I have experienced is a little fatigue after the 5 day cycles each month. I have been on Temodar for a year and my doctor checks my blood count each month and it has been great.
