    I wasn't on it long enough. I was taken off of it because of severe side effects but I do recall my one saying I wouldn't loser my hair. I would not only check the company's website but also google it and see what other discussion forums say.

    Look up Xeloda and see if it's listed as a side effect or ask your doctor.

    I've been on Xeloda for 8 months and my hair actually grew back while on it. Hair loss is not a typical side effect, but it could be from another medication.
