Has anybody on Doxil had any hair loss.  My Oncologist told me he didnt think that I would lose any hair with Doxil, but I am losing like strands.  It is like when you brush your hair and you have loose strands that fall down.  Its not coming out in clumps like it did with Taxol.

I am on doxil just took my 5th treatment and I have lots of thinning of my hair. Not clumps like yours but lots of hair coming out. My dr says that it can cause thinning.

My hair did the same thing but it just thinned and didn't really grow much while I was on it, but no bald spots !
