Healthy Hair Growth after Prescription Medicine Induced Hair Loss

Hair loss can be a side effect of numerous medications, including antidepressants, beta-blockers, high blood pressure medications, nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs, and even some types of birth control pills. The severity of drug-induced hair loss depends on the type of drug and dosage, as well as your sensitivity to that drug.

According to The American Hair Loss Association, many commonly prescribed prescription drugs can cause temporary hair loss, and trigger the onset of male and female pattern baldness. The organization maintains a list of prescription medications that may cause hair loss.

The good news is, in most cases, hair loss due to prescription medicines is easily reversible.

Natural Remedies for Drug Induced Hair Loss

Try these natural remedies to help reverse hair loss, prevent future hair loss and encourage healthy hair regrowth. It is important to consult your physician before pursuing these alternatives.


Shampoo with sage.

Sage has been believed for centuries to help prevent hair loss. Sage extract can be added to your favorite shampoo. Or you can use double-strength sage tea daily as a hair rinse to encourage hair growth.


Soothe scalp with safflower.

Safflower is considered to be a good vasodilator helping to widen blood vessels allowing blood to flow more easily to the scalp thus increasing hair growth. Massage safflower oil on your scalp for twenty minutes a day to increase local blood flow and stimulate hair growth.


Drink a minimum of 8 to 10 glasses (8 ounce serving) of water a day.

Water is critical to hair health. Not only does water make up approximately one fourth of the weight of a strand of hair making it shiny, but water also acts as an antioxidant by flushing free radicals out of the body allowing for healthy cell reproduction. Plus, if you are supplementing your diet with vitamins, your body will not absorb the nutrients if you are dehydrated.
