Could Your Hair Loss Be Due To Your Meds?

Web MD has a list of medications with hair loss as a possible side effect, including some over-the-counter medications.  For those mature naturals who are prescribed meds for high blood pressure, high cholesterol, HRT, or antidepressants, some of the meds may cause hair loss.  Here are a few from the list:  

  • Lopid
  • Thyroid medications
  • Paxil
  • Lopressor
  • Zoloft
  • Tenormin
  • Birth control pills
  • Hormone replacement therapy
  • Naprosyn
  • Prednisone
  • Zantac
  • Pepcid

Web MD has a lot of interesting articles in regards to health information ( new drugs, surgical procedures, healthy living, etc.).  It’s also a good website to bookmark.

  1. Excellent post! Very informative! Thanks. I never thought about the effects of these types of meds on hair. Another good reason to take good care of oneself and avoid those meds is for our hair’s sake.
