My partner bashed me in the head and started the onset of complex parcial seisures. I have tryed Tegretol, Epelim &Topamax but all cause hairloss. I have stopped medication for now and would like to find a drug that stops hair loss. My hair has started to grow back after stopping all drugs 8 months ago

If it has finally started growing back, then it may just be best to let it do it naturally, without medication interference.

However, one that is used to increase hair growth is Spironolactone, it is used to treat many medical conditions, such as high blood pressure, as a diuretic, to replace potassium and etc. Hair growth is one of its side effects.

You can learn more about it here:


I've been taking the lowest dose available, for my blood pressure and low potassium levels and I can say with certainty that it does make most people's hair grow like crazy! Mine's out of control.

What are you currently using for the seizures?

Try taking Tocomin, which was recommended by my NP. None of the other med's recommended by the others on this site worked for me. I purchased mine from Swanson's site. I hope this help.

Sheryl Lou, the hair loss is a rare, but known side effect of the Lisinopril and the Hydrochlorothiazide. It is actually so rare that most doctors and pharmacists are not even aware of it, because to find it listed, you have to read the in-depth medication details.

If it is severe, I'd suggest talking to your doctor about possibly changing to a different medication.



Are there any other questions or comments?

I took the Spironolactone for several years with no success. As for the Tocomin that I recommended, it's a strong form of vitamin C. Most pharmacies don't carry it. You may be able to find it at GNC. I take 50 mg daily. It won't hurt you body, only provide additional benefits for it. Also take a high grade B complex and Omega fish oil. Good luck.

Another possibility that people may wish to discuss with their doctors is just trying a Biotin supplement. It's also referred to as Vitamin B7, so many times it would be included in the types of supplements that NursingStudent recommended.

Supplementing it has been shown, in some cases, to arrest hair loss and improve the rate at which is grows back.

However, the mentioned supplements aren't tested for interactions against other medications, so everyone should always check with their doctor, before adding them.


Is there anything else I can help with?

My hair has been turning white very fast and I've been losing hair from the top of my head. Please suggest any treatment options or ayurvedic medicine to avoid baldness.
