That is so strange that you mention that. I have someone in my household who is losing a lot of hair too. Been taking adderall xr for almost a year now. I even bought them the hair growth shampoo I never even thought about it being the adderall... There is a shampoo that helps it is called nioxin. The only one approved by the american cancer society, You should check it out :)

I take AdderallXR 60mg daily. Hair loss? A significant part of my scalp is bald and I have had a horrible skin condition with no resolve for a few years. As long as I've taken Adderall! I think we are on to something. Anyone else experience skin problems? Mainly face & scalp. Anyone taking other ADD meds w/o hair & skin trouble. Please reply qickly - desperate for a cure!

Kristie - Good shampoo info. Does it require an RX? I could probably find out another way but I'm going the easy route. Thanks for any additional info re: hair loss remedies!

Kristie- Found a web site for nioxin so I have my answer. Very expensive. The cost could make a person pull out their hair!

I have been taking XR for a couple of months now 20mg. I just did a whole weeks worth of research on hair loss. I thought it was some of the other medications I take but I have been on them for over a year and no hair loss. But in the last 6 weeks, OMG my hair has gotten so thin. So I did a google search and found this string. What have you guys been doing to stop the hair loss? Has it worked?

I have been on adderal since I was in middle school, but only since April have I been on the XR 20mgs a day and my hair is falling out a lot! Its so thin, I was also just diagnosed with Reactive Arthritis so I thought that maybe it was that, but then it dawned on me today that it might be the adderal xr. All the info says its rare, but from testimonitals I've seen online, it doesn't seem too rare to me!!!!

Do have your ferritin (iron stores) checked. People with ADHD may be more likely to have low iron stores, which has been linked to diffuse hair loss or thinning and which may worsen while on stimulants. After a year of taking an iron supplement off and on, my hair has thickened again. I still take Concerta.
