Any hypertensive meds that don't cause hair loss? Vasotec, lebatalol, diovan, bystolic (nebivolol) work but cause hair loss. Benicar doesn't reduce dystolic #.

Any hypertensive meds that don't cause hair loss? Vasotec, lebatalol, diovan, bystolic (nebivolol) work but cause hair loss. Benicar doesn't reduce dystolic #.

Unusual side effect: I have treated pts for forty years, and i can't remember that complained of hair loss after starting any of these agents.

Taking Benicar (olmesartan) 40/ hct 12.5 but my potassium is 3.0 as the diuretic is causing potassium loss. Any other meds to control htn  & replace hctz diuretic?

Low potassium levels: Your low potassium (k) could be worsened by magnesium (m) loss due to hct. Your k won't be normal unless the m is repleted.
