Have any of the ladies on Norvasc noticed a difference in your hair texture since starting this medication. Mine seems drier and I noticed a little more shedding than normal. I'm not saying that this is really happening to me, it could just be hormones, or a change in weather. I was just wondering if anyone else noticed anything happening with their hair?
Yup! I did experience flushing with norvasc...I wasn't sure it was due to the medication (and yes, it is listed as a side effect) or to menopause but I haven't had a single "flush" since I've discontinued it six months ago (I stopped taking it due to sleep disturbances).


PS Study revealed that out of 512 women, 4.5 percent experienced flushing.
