Use of benecar can rarely cause alopecia. Ask your doctor to substitute that drug if possible.U can use minoxidil topical lot to control your hair fall.Fix an appointment to a dermatologist to solve your hair problem.Do not either stop antihypertensive drug suddenly by yourself or take it irregularly.
