Dr. J. Kirk Clopton answered
31 years experience Psychiatry
Medication: Trichotillomania symptoms can be increased by anxiety, so therapy to manage anxiety can be helpful in diminishing the symptoms. It used to be thought of as primarily an OCD disorder, but is now recognized as a tic disorder. Medications that are effective in treating tic disorders can be very effective.
