Comments from related studies:
From this study (3 years ago):
Isoptin SR has recently been increased, along with introduction of Nebilet (Bystolic). Had been on Aspirin 300mg, Pravastatin 40mg, and Isoptin SR 120mg x 2 a day, for years and seemed fine. Recent introduction of another 120mg Isoptin and Bystolic 1.5mg seem to have caused havoc (although maybe the hair loss predates this.) Centrax is very occasional, possibly 10mg x 2 or 3 a week.
