Adderall or Ritalin — Which Is More Likely to Cause Hair Loss?

Between Adderall and Ritalin, which of the two would be most likely to cause alopecia? I know this is a loaded question. Thanks drs

There’s no way for me to know that. Adderall’s safety label was updated last year to include alopecia, and there are some reports of hair loss associated with Ritalin as well… but these are likely rare. I don’t generally prescribe either medication, so perhaps your doctor might be more familiar with them.

For men, the most common cause of hair loss is due to genetics (not medication).
