Web MD – "Medications are designed to treat a variety of health conditions, but sometimes they can have unwanted side effects. Certain drugs can give to excess hair growth, changes in hair color or texture, or hair loss. Drug-induced hair loss, like any other type of hair loss, can have a real effect on your self-esteem. The good news is that in most cases, it’s easily reversible once you stop taking the drug."
