Re: Wellbutrin and hair loss?

Marly, there's a number of ADs that can cause hair loss. Not every med will affect the same people the same way. I, too, lost hair on my ADs. I was rather alarmed but at least for me, the cycling of the hair follicle growth seems speeded up. I've been on ADs for +15 years & while I still lose lots of individual hairs, the total feel of my hair still feels as thick as before.

I think it's replaced as fast as I lose it. If I wished to grow my hair long, I'd probably find that it wouldn't grow as long as before. But seeing I keep it short now, I don't mind.

> Just found your online thread, posted in 1998. I have been on Wellbutrin for two months and have been steadily losing my normally thick hair. I am *very* alarmed, and had no idea it was a side effect until coming online today.
> Did the hairloss ever stop and did new hair grow back after a while, or did you quit taking Wellbutrin? I really like the drug but may quit taking it for this reason. If you quit taking it, did your hair grow back to its original state?
> Thank you for sharing your experience,
