Does bupropion cause hair loss?

Hair loss is a rare side effect of bupropion, and it is not a common or well-established side effect of the medication. In clinical studies, hair loss was reported in less than 1% of people taking bupropion.

However, if you are experiencing hair loss while taking bupropion, it is important to discuss this with your healthcare provider. They can help determine the underlying cause of the hair loss and recommend appropriate treatment options. In some cases, hair loss may be related to other factors, such as stress or nutritional deficiencies, rather than the medication itself.

It is important to only take bupropion as prescribed by a healthcare provider and to report any side effects or concerns to them. They can help determine if any changes to the medication regimen are needed to address these issues.

There are various forms of drugs available, such as tablets or liquids, and each may have a separate patient information leaflet (PIL) for different doses. It is important to refer to the PIL for the specific form and dose of the drug that you have been prescribed.
