Blood Pressure Drugs and Hair Loss

Question: Can you recomend a blood pressure medication that will not cause my hair to fall out. I have been using lisinopril for 6 months and am afraid that my hair is falling out because of it. I was taking metformin but stopped because i heard it too can also cause hair loss. Is this true? Help!

Answer: My advice is for you to review all of the blood pressure medications by searching online. Different drug side effects on hair loss are published and can be found. Your blood pressure control should take a higher priority than hair loss, but searching for the right drugs with a good doctor helping you is a good idea. It is also possible that the drugs are not the cause of your hair loss, but rather you are experiencing hair loss from an acceleration of the genetic process. For this possibility I would recommend seeing a good Hair Doctor, Good Luck, Dr. Robert Jones.
