Accupril and Hair Loss
Hair loss appears to be a rare complaint in people taking Accupril® (quinapril hydrochloride). In clinical studies, this side effect was reported in less than 1 percent of people who took Accupril. Given how common hair loss is in the general population and how rare a complaint it is in people who take Accupril, 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 Accupril, talk with your healthcare provider. Depending on how severe the problem is, there are things that he or she may be able to do. If hair loss becomes bothersome, your healthcare provider may recommend adjusting the Accupril dosage or trying another medicine for your condition.
