Is hair fall a side effect of blood pressure medication?

I am in my seventies. I am taking three kinds of blood pressure meds. Several months ago I started losing hair. Most of it is coming off the top center of my head as well as the forehead line. Can you help me? Is it the meds? My wife is the patient. I am doing this for her.
