In clinical studies, hair loss was reported in less than 1 percent of people who took Lotrel. Given how common hair loss is in the general population and how rare a complaint it is in people who take Lotrel, it is difficult to say whether the hair loss is caused by the medicine, genetics, other factors, or a combination of these things.
If you experience hair loss while taking Lotrel, talk with your doctor. Depending on the severity of the hair loss, there are things that he or she may be able to do. If your symptoms continue to be bothersome or if your Doctor believes the medicine is causing your hair loss, he or she may recommend trying another medicine for your high blood pressure.
