funkymunky Posted March 4, 2012 Share Posted March 4, 2012 I am taking 10 mg lexapro (for 5 months now) which has helped immensely with my depression- went from crying every day, insomnia, ruminating, light anxiety to stable mood and positive outlook. Then I am also taking 225 mg of wellbutrin - one 150 SR and one 75 SR in the day to help with my ADD (inattentive type) and to counteract the sleepy feel of the lexapro I recently noticed that in the past couple months (I think since taking Wellbutrin), I have cutting my hair daily. I spend about 30 minutes pretty much daily, running my fingers through my hair, then finding little hairs that are out of place and snipping on them. I have never had behavior like this before and I don't know what it even can be called. I have also noticed another unusual behavior. I will do endless internet searches for things I don't even want. For example, I spent 2 hours looking at shoes for sale when I have no intention to buy any. Yet my impulsive shopping habit has curbed ever since I have taken lexapro. I am new to Anti-depressants, but prior to anti-depressants, I was taking vyvanse or ritalin. The only downside was that when it wore off, I could control my anger appropriately or my tears and I was a bit of an unpredictable mess come night time. I know I need to go to the doctor, but I am the type of person who likes to educate myself and gather as much info. Is the hair snipping some kind of obsessive disorder or a mania? I am afraid to make changes as this is the closest I have ever gotten to feeling good, but I am running out of hair! Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
