5 Medications That May Start Hair Loss

Hair loss is a frustrating and stressful process that can occur due to a wide range of reasons, like heredity, lack of healthy diet, or over-styling. Hair works as a gauge for both scalp health and general wellbeing.

Unfortunately, a few medicines for particular health problems can make hair drop out as well. Normally, helpful medications, for example, painkillers, antidepressants, acne medicines, BP reducers, and numerous others bring the danger of activating hair follicle problems.

Let’s take a look at some medicines that may increase the rate of hair loss.

  1. Acne Medicines

Several medications and supplements intended to cure acne have retinoid, which have abnormal amounts of vitamin A. It’s true that small amount of vitamin A can really stop follicle harm, but if the dose is too high, then follicles might briefly stop. Some acne medicines are also known to result in mild to severe hair loss in their 6 month cycle.

  1. Antidepressants

Generally, hair follicles constantly develop hair strands for a long time before going on a short break known as the ‘telogen’. Amid telogen stage, hairs just hang on the scalp for 3 or more months, and then shed when the follicles start becoming active once more. For various reasons, some antidepressants make hairs shed at the start of telogen rather than the end, leaving people with male pattern baldness.

  1. Birth Control Drugs

Unlike any other drug mentioned on this list that causes hair loss, birth control medicines are known to do the damage to the hair when you stop the consumption. Contraception drugs and practically any medication that alters the female hormones consist of anti-androgens that bring down the level of testosterone in the system, also increase the chances of hair loss in females.

  1. Blood Thinners

We’re not discussing disprin here, but rather prescribed blood thinners, which are meant for individuals at risk of getting blood clots, or people who are suffering from vein thrombosis. Medications, for example, heparin, and to a lesser degree medications with warfarin has the ability to damage the activity of hair follicles.

  1. Medicines Meant For Dieting

Those planning to lose excess weight by utilizing dieting medications may end up diminishing their hair too. Unorthodox changes in hormones and metabolic rates, or utilization of general amphetamine can provoke hair follicles to go to sleep until the treatment finishes or body recovers. A bad diet, vitamin inadequacies, and extreme weight reduction can likewise begin balding problem in connection to diet medications.

These drugs may lead to hair loss, resulting in low confidence and zero self-esteem. So, go for hair transplant in Mumbai to solve your baldness problem.

Note: The above mentioned medicines may or may not have an effect on the process of hair loss. You need to consult your doctor before starting or stopping any consumption of medicines. Although these medicines may affect many people, but sometimes might not begin hair loss. Consult your doctor before you discontinue any medication, which you were already taking.
