Yes blood pressure medications CAN cause hair loss. Talk to your doctor and see if he can change some of the medications, IF this is what is causing your hair loss.

Are you on an ace inhibitor? I just started on this about a month ago and I read ace inhibitors can cause hair loss, so now I am worried about losing hair, again.
