Dealing with high blood pressure is never fun. Not only can the medical situation be cumbersome to navigate on its own, but many medications also have unforeseen side effects. For example, several high blood pressure medications may cause hair loss, including:
- enalapril (Vasotec)
- lisinopril (Prinivil, Zestril)
- captopril (Capoten)
These medications are known as ACE inhibitors and they are very effective at reducing blood pressure without many harmful side effects.
Hair loss from medications is frustrating. You can’t skip these medications due to hair loss.
High blood pressure is known as “the silent killer.” Some only realize they have it during a medical emergency. High blood pressure damages blood vessels, and you can’t ignore it.
High blood pressure affects blood flow and can result in heart disease. For people with diabetes, high blood pressure heightens kidney disease risk. You must continue the blood pressure medication.
