Well come to HCM
I really appreciate your concern, anti-hypertensive medicines does not cause hair loss, if this is male patron baldness then it could be the cause only (In male person ) for the female it coudl be due to hormone changes and other systemic causes but not anti-hypertensive medicines hope this information helps.
