My psych doc and I are talking about starting Neurontin to combat my alcohol cravings. I was great on Wellbutrin for that, but my hair started falling out by the handfuls after 3 months. Have been off the Wellbutrin for a month and a half; hair still falling out and I'm drinking again. : ( Will Neurontin continue to make my hair fall out? Between my bipolar depression, impact on my self-esteem ( hair loss) and my panic over becoming alcohol-dependent I'm a real mess. Help!!!
My name is Kim I have been using remicade for approximately four months now and I will be visiting my hairdresser tomorrow to cut my hair short due to severe hair loss. It is beyond saving. And the texture of my hair has become very course. I have psoriatic athritis and remicade helps me to move again. My hair loss has depressed me to the fullest.
They put me on Adderall XR 25mg for my ADHD. I'm also on lithium carbonate er and neurontin. I was on the adderall for one week and now I'm still having symptoms of psychosis. I'm hallucinating and having a hard time distinguishing what is real and what isn't. I still have extreme paranoia as well. I've been off of it for about a month. When I was on it I didn't talk to anybody cause I was delusional and believed EVERYONE had hidden intentions to destroy me (even those closest to me). I still have some of that. I just want all the psychosis to stop. It's stressing me out. Anyone having any suggestions to help? I hallucinate shadows and people and hearing my name. I see people looking at me and I feel like they're judging me and planning something.
