Comment:
I too have been having diarrhea and my hair has been following out...but never connected that with the Zetia. Are both of these side effects of the medicine? I used to have such beautiful hair and now I lose hair just shaking my head! After reading these comments will have to talk to my doctor. I also get the joint aches and pains.

Comment:
I was on Zetia for 13 months and it did lower my cholesterol. But it also caused my hair to fall out and become very fine. I stopped taking it for a month and my hair stopped falling out and became coarser again. My doctor put me back on but I intend to report this hair thinning to him when I go for my check up visit in 2 months.

I have been on this drug for about 8 months. Before treatment LDL Cholesterol was 128 with diet adjustment. After 6 months on Zetia AND adjustment to diet, the reading was 91. HDL jumped from 36 to 44 during the same period.
