Drugs and Prescriptions That May Induce Hair Loss

Causes of Hair Loss Boston

Drugs and Prescriptions

Many commonly prescribed prescription drugs can cause temporary hair loss, trigger the onset of male and female pattern baldness, and even cause permanent hair loss. Note that the drugs listed here do not include those used in chemotherapy and radiation for cancer treatment.
 
For many prescriptions your physician may not know or tell you that hair loss is a side affect of a particular medicine. Your pharmacist can provide you an exact list of side affects for each medication
 
The drugs are listed by category, according to the conditions they treat, then by brand name first, followed by the drug’s generic name in parentheses. In some categories, individual drugs are not listed. For these conditions, you will want to discuss the possibility of hair loss as a side effect of using any of the drugs that treat that particular condition, since many do contribute to hair loss.
