Blood Pressure Home > Cozaar and Hair Loss
Hair loss appears to be a rare complaint in people taking Cozaar® (losartan potassium). In clinical studies, hair loss was reported in less than 1 percent of people who took the medicine. However, given how common hair loss is in the general population and how rare a complaint it is in people taking Cozaar, it is difficult to say whether hair loss is actually caused by the medicine, genetics, other factors, or a combination of these things.
If you experience hair loss while taking Cozaar, talk with your healthcare provider. Depending on how severe the hair loss is, 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 medicine for your high blood pressure or diabetic nephropathy.
