 Hi everyone, haven't posted anything for a while so here goes.  I am on high blood pressure meds. for years and now my hair is thinning.  I know that age is part of the problem, but are there any BP meds that do not cause hair loss.  I always had very thick hair and now it is worrying me, causing my anxiety to flare up.  It is a vicious cicle.  I am going to see my doc. soon but wanted to know what meds I could ask about.  I now take HCTZ, enalapril, atenolol. plus my anxiety med. Alpraylozam.  (spelling)
 
Thanks for any answers.
Annie

Good Morning,
 
I am sorry nobody responded to you right away but here I am now. 
 
Your doctor may not mention hair loss as a side effect of some drugs, so don't forget to do your own research and read the drug manufacturer's complete warnings. Your pharmacist can provide you with this information even before you fill a prescription.

Tenormin (atenolol) is sometimes connected to hair loss.  Hair loss appears to be a rare complaint in people taking enalapril. Have your questions ready for your Dr. and good luck.
 
Kindly,
Kitt
