Hair loss appears to be a rare complaint in people taking Benicar. In clinical studies, hair loss was reported in less than 1% of people who took Benicar. Given how common hair loss is in the general population and how rare a complaint it is in people who take Benicar, it is difficult to say whether hair loss is caused by the medicine, genetics, other factors, or a combination of these things.

If you experience hair loss while taking Benicar, talk with your doc. 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 doc believes the medicine is causing your hair loss, he or she may recommend trying another medicine.

Take care, best wishes!
