Blood Pressure Home > Calan and Hair Loss
Hair loss appears to be a rare complaint in people taking Calan® (verapamil hydrochloride). In clinical studies, hair loss was reported in less than 1 percent of people who took Calan. Given how common hair loss is in the general population and how rare a complaint it is in people who take Calan, 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 Calan, talk with your healthcare provider. Depending on the severity of your hair loss, there are things that he or she may be able to do. If your symptoms continue to be bothersome or if your healthcare provider believes the medicine is causing your hair loss, he or she may recommend trying another medication.
