Hello all, this is my first post so bare with me! I too suffer with ADHD and trichotillomania. It began about 5 years ago while I was sitting in traffic for an hour after work. It then progressed to me pulling out my hair while problem solving at work or anytime I was in deep thought. My psychiatrist put me on Lamectil which is a mood stabilizer. I still struggle from time to time but it has helped tremendously. I also wear gloves or a bandana if I’m sitting still. It’s literally like I have magnets on my fingers and my head is the giant target. I hope this helps!
