I have been losing hair and had thinning hair for several years. Been diagnosed with female pattern hair loss, tried many things to cope. Up until a few months ago I had been pretty happy being in a "holding pattern" with the hair loss...no better, but no worse. Recently I have noticed that the loss is back and visually harder to hide. Anyway, being new to this site, I have been doing alot of reading and came across this thread of medications that can cause hair loss. In checking the list I have found that the propanolol that I have been taking for mitral valve prolapse since September is on the list. Does anyone have any experience with this? If so, would a medication change allow for some regrowth? I am not sure why my doctor would prescribe this to me knowing my history of hair loss.
