Drugs that Cause Baldness

Many believe that their presrciption medications or drugs are the cause of their baldness, and, in many cases, their belief is true.

The LA Times article on this occurrence does point out, though, that it is imperative that you do not immediately stop taking the baldness-inducer.

Instead, you can switch to a similar drug or medicine that does not have hair loss as a side-effect.  Just go back to your health professional and ask your physician for a more suitable alternative drug.

Yes, it is very good news if you find out your hair loss is being caused by a drug. It means that you can reverse your hair loss by changing your medications, and, effectively, have a full head of hair again.

Medication, though, is very rarely the cause of your hair loss, thinning nor of baldness, in men

So don't get your hopes up -- although medicines and drugs do cause hair loss, they may not be what is causing yours.

If you're noticing hair loss in a pattern often associated with some kind of male pattern baldness, it probably isn't caused by medications.

Thinning across the front and center, bald spots in the back, and horseshoe receding are all signs of Androgenetic alopecia -- or, as it is more commonly called, male pattern baldness.

Specifically if you're between the ages of 18 and 65, male pattern baldness is probably the cause in at least 90% of cases.

Although we would like to compile a full list of drugs with hair loss as a side-effect, it isn't really practical to do so.

There is a plethora of drugs that have this side-effect, and actually listing them all would be pointless, as you can simply ask your physician if you have a question about a drug or medicine, as previously mentioned.

Also, most medications come with a compulsory list of adverse side effects that the drug may cause, so always check out those lists to see if hair loss, baldness or alopecia is mentioned.


Drugs are a far more greater cause of hair loss and baldness in women

Specifically women should make sure that the medicines they are taking do not cause hair loss, as, when the cause of their hair loss is uncertain after diagnostic tests, it is, many many times, one of the things they are taking.
