HCTZ and Clonidine

I have read that the above 2 high BP medications cause hair thinning and and even alopecia areata. My doctor has switched me to a bistolic and furosemide because of what I read about HCTZ and Clonidine. My question is, if these drugs were causing my hair loss, how long would it take for my hair to return to normal?
