Hair loss after stopping BP med

Hello, Three weeks ago I stopped taking my blood pressure (at the advisement of my doctor) but I am still experiencing hair loss and flaky scalp. I was taking Losartan for three months and the side effects kept getting worse and worse. I can't get in to see a dermatologist for another week or so but I'm wondering at what point do these side effects stop? I hate dealing with both but seeing the hair loss every day is very worrisome.

Does anyone know how long until the side effects reverse? Any natural treatments I should try? I don't want to take ANY more medication if I don't have to.

Thanks,
Jo
