Greetings to all: I was on the lowest dose of a Beta Blocker type blood press. medicine for 2 1/2 yrs....noticed hair starting to fall out!!!! NONE of the cautions on pharmacy sheets I was given EVER said this could happen. I had to dig like crazy to find out BB type medicines can cause this...& my Dr. and two pharmacists said "No couldnt be the med."
I lost loads of confid. here in med.folks/pharm. and I wonder why I was immediately taken off BB type and put on ACE type??? Wasn't my thyrioid-that was tested. ANYONE ELSE FIND OUT THE HARD WAY WHAT SOME OF THE MEDS CAN DO? I cannot prove it was med. but I will always believe it as when I was taken off BB it stopped within 6 weeks or sooner. Input appreciated.
