Blood Pressure Home > Diovan and Hair Loss
Hair loss appears to be a rare complaint in people taking Diovan® (valsartan). In clinical studies, less than 1 percent of people who took Diovan reported losing hair. Given how common hair loss is in the general population and how rare a complaint it is in people who take Diovan, 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 Diovan, talk with your healthcare provider. Depending on the severity, 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 congestive heart failure.
