I was prescribed 150 mg of Wellbutrin and 5mg of Dexedrine 4 times a day. It was wonderful. It helped me so much. I was a functioning human being doing things and just living a peaceful life. But my hair started falling out in massive amounts. I mea a ridiculous amount of hair was lost. Turns out it was the Wellbutrin. Apparently that’s a common side affect. So I stopped the Wellbutrin and just took the dex
. The Wellbutrin wasn’t for depression it was to help the Dexedrine. I didn’t want to take a large amount of dex so my doc prescribed the Wellbutrin as a buffer I suppose. But it worked awesome. So I guess it depends on if the hair loss is worth it or not.
