I recently started Wellbutrin and I am feeling great.  Still some sad times but at least all the crying has stopped.  I did notice that I am loosing hair.  Has anyone ever experienced this while on this medication?  I am not sure if it is the meds or possibly something else.

I never had that problem when taking wellbutrin. Or any other medication. Maybe it is something else.

I am happy that the wellbutrin is helping you in other ways. Keep posting and let us know how things are going.

Hi this is Kitt,

Wellbutrin does have a reputation for causing hair loss.  It is an individual thing as with all the meds.

There is a product that I have heard works when hair loss is noted using Wellbutrin..................Nioxin.

Nioxin produces a line of hair loss treatment  shampoos that attempt to inhibit DHT - thus fighting hair loss.  Nioxin is produced by the Nioxin Research Labs.

Good luck and let us know how your doing.
