I saw some posts on this site somewhere before but have searched and couldn't find any.
I have heard a lot of people saying that wellbutrin INCREASED their hairloss, even though it is not a 'listed' side effect. I don't know what is going on with my hair but it is falling out so bad, i have been on Wellbutrin(generic version) since oct, but in the last month or two I began to make sure I'm taking my full dosage everyday. I don't know if it's my thyroid, or just the pcos acting up, or the wellbutrin. Im a hairstylist and I really don't care to be bald. my temples are nothing but miniaturized hairs. it is scaring me now. I have very fine thin hair, and was growing it out in the hopes that if I got pg it would thicken up and grow a bit. I bought some Nioxin again, and have been using it almost everyday. the last time I used it, within a month i saw new sprouts and less shedding. Not this time!!! I have seen posts about the Nizoral, I might try it. I am also taking a rx prenatal, but was taking prenatals and fish oil previously as well. I am on met and synthroid. I was on spiro for a while but never noticed any improvement in hair loss, or facial hair. I eat fairly healthy and drink water. I am at a steady weight, around 196-198. so no recent big losses or anything!
Has anyone else noticed increased hair loss with Wellbutrin? Is there any tips for people experiencing hairloss with antidepressents? I sure can't quit taking it, oh boy, that's not an option.
