I started taking coreg in Feb.,2011. Three months later I could see a difference in my hair. Now the loss is quite noticeable to everyone. The loss is all over my head. I have asked people in different medical disciplines about this and they have all said " no connection". Today, my friend's cardiologist said coreg causes hairloss. What is true?
I don't know about coreg. But I have been on warfarin 1 yr. Had hair loss so bad, you could see my scap on top. About 6 months ago, doctor put me on 1000 mg of Biotin. I also take a extra B-complex, extra B -12, Hair, skin & nail vits & minerals. Also, 1000 mg vit D-3. Also, once a month I put 1 tablespoon of bakinfg soda (not baking powder) in a glass of water and poured it through my hair after washing it, and then rinsed this off. This removed all buildup on hair and scap. Also, I have put 1/4 cup vinegar in a large glass of water and poured through my hair after washing. I did not rinse this out. Look up vinegar and hair loss. Today, My scap is full of hair stubs. It is growing back! Good Luck to you and others!
My husband has been taking Coreg for nearly a year and has horrible hair loss. It will grow back after I message coconut oil into his hair everyday and then start falling out in patches again. He never encountered this problem before being placed on this medication. I sincerely feel as though this medication causes hair loss. Try massaging coconut oil into your scalp a couple times a week as i believe that the medication causes severe dryness and leads to the breakage. This seemed to help my husband.
