What type of BP meds can cause you to lose hair? I have been on a Beta Blocker for quite some time and am experiencing hair loss on the top of my head. Could the meds be related?
Medication can cause hair loss. In the case of beta blockers, the hair loss is usually reversible and typically is described as an increase in overall hair shedding. Top of the head hair loss is more frequently related to male pattern baldness. Medications can make this type of baldness more apparent. In any case of hair loss, it is best to have a physician examine the hair and scalp so that the cause can be determined and appropriate treatment started.
