Q: I have been on Diovan for 1yr and metoprol for 15 months. In the last 4 months I have lost half of my hair. A Dermatoligist and my MD can’t find a cause. Could it be the BP meds?
A: Yes, it is possible that your hair loss is a side effect of your blood pressure medicines. Hair loss has been reported as a side effect of both Diovan and Metoprolol. It is more common for side effects to occur when you start taking a drug but they can develop at any time.
