I have been on it for about 6 months and have been losing hair more than normal. I already have thin hair and can't afford to lose any. I have been on several antidepressants over the years and this is the only one that has worked for me so I'm hoping it is not the cause of my hair loss. I'm 44 years old. Thank you.

Alopecia (hair loss or thinning) is a reported side effect of Wellbutrin SR, though it appears to be uncommon see http://www.drugs.com/sfx/wellbutrin-side-effects.html

I too have been on Wellbutrin sr (generic though) for almost 6 months. I have lost a huge amount of hair. And it is getting worse! I have done quite a bit of research on this and it does CAUSE HAIR LOSS. I went off the medication yesterday. Praying that my hair will stop falling out and will start to grow in. Really stressful.
