Doctors commonly prescribe Losartan, or Cozaar, for treating hypertension (high blood pressure). Like many medications, Losartan provides genuine benefits for many people but does not come without side effects. Among many blood pressure medications, one debate regarding Losartan is whether taking it can lead to hair loss.
The evidence linking Losartan and other medications to hair loss is different. Research is limited, although many high blood pressure medications have a stronger scientific linkage to hair loss than Losartan. These include beta-blockers such as Tenormin, Lopressor, or ACE inhibitors that can also work to lower blood pressure, such as Vasotec, Zestril, or Capoten.
Other factors related to the medication, such as body stress, life stress, or other health conditions, might cause hair loss, not just the drug or its side effects.
You should always consult a physician regarding the specific side effects of a drug. They may be able to determine if the particular medication is causing hair loss.
Medication, genetics, or stress can all lead to distressing hair loss. While many hair loss solution products exist, few give lasting results and can achieve the goal without side effects or the permanent need for retreatment.
