I'm simply curious? Do any of the current HIV/AIDS drugs cause hair loss or hair to thin?

 In the monography  of Atazanavir , hair loss or thining is mentioned as a potent side effect. 1 in 1000.

The only meds I have taken was Atripla, though not anymore. Before my husband and I started taking it, both of us was suffering from major hair loss. But a month before we started meds, my CD4 count was 6 and his was 89. So it was probably just the extremely low immune system. After starting the Atripla, hair loss was gone.
