    Will the lost hair grow back after using amphetamines?

    I started Adderall a few months ago and stopped after realizing that my thinning hair was a result. Does anyone know if the hair that was lost will grow back? I have been off it for about 2 weeks and it still seems to be falling out.

    If your loss is not a result of a scarring form of alopecia (e.x. MPB) then there has been no damage to your follicles and your hair will probably grow back when the underlying cause seizes to exist.

    I am almost positive that it is a direct result of the medication I was taking. Do you know if amphetamines can expedite the beginning stages of MPB?

    amphetamines absolutely KILL hair

    but providing you take your vitamins you should grow most of it back

    Go munch some MSM tablets, that should do the trick.

    I just read on WebMD (http://my.webmd.com/content/article/110/109705) that Amphetamines can not only cause temporary hair loss but can trigger the onset of MPB. I am going to see a doctor now because I am obsessing over this and my hair will not stop falling out, my scalp also feels irritated. I see a dermatologist about this right? or should I visit my regular doctor?

    For hair loss, a priest is your best choice.
    Madam, I have left my hair at home, forgive me.

    It was from Adderall which is a combination of neutral sulfate salts of: Dextroamphetamine Saccharate, Amphetamine Aspartate, Dextroamphetamine Sulfate USP and Amphetamine Sulfate USP. I believe Ephedrine is a little different as is contains not actual amphetamines but amphetamine like compounds?
