Alopecia (hair loss) caused by drugs usually stops once treatment is stopped.
Are you sure the Pravastatin is the cause of your hair loss?
You should see your doctor though if it is concerning you.
Lipitor, another type of statin, does not have alopecia as a reported side effect. It could be worth considering.
