    Yes, Lipitor can cause hair loss but it is considered to be a very rare side effect of this medication.

    If your dad has started experiencing hair loss only after going on Lipitor, then the two might be related. The best thing is to consult the doctor who prescribed it and report this side effect (and others, if exist). This will allow the doctor to determine whether to switch your dad to a different medication.
