... excessive hair loss! Has anyone else noticed this while taking labetalol ? My cardiologist denies that this could be a side effect of labetalol. I do also take 3 other BP meds (micardis, clonidine and norvasc). I'd appreciate hearing from others who have experienced the same problem. Thank you!

I agree with Lauras answer on this. You don't list if you are male or female, but does hair loss or baldness run in your family? If it does, maybe it's your turn! It also could be related to something comeletely different. You could speak with you primary care doctor about this problem. I wish you the best... Mary

Biotin (5 grams) have been shown to be effective in regrowing hair. However, it will take about 4-6 months before there will be noticeable growth. Please do not dye your hair as this can kill follicles. Yes, a professional may be able to help. There are a variety of avenues available if nothing seems to be working. Women, also, have hair transplants, there are "fillers" that can be shaken on or sprayed on to make sparse area look fuller, there are thickening shampoos/conditioners, etc. I hope this has helped. Best Wishes, Chris

Labetolol is simply a beta-blocker, it lowers your blood pressure and heart rate. I couldn't find any references where a side effect of any beta-blocker causing hair loss.
Extreme stress, dermatology problems, other meds may cause hair loss though.
I would try to calm down. Might want to check other meds or go see a dermatologist.
