What is Trichotillomania?

Internal stress and distress manifests in many ways.  One unusual but somewhat common (almost 2% of general population) expression of such distress is called trichotillomania.  Specifically, trichotillomania consists of pulling hair from the body, primarily from the scalp.  This compulsion to pull hair occurs daily. 

About the Study Medication

So far there are no proven methods of treatment.  This includes forms of psychotherapy and medications.  Some experts consider trichotillomania to be a variation of obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD) and have suggested the use of medications for OCD such as clomipramine, Prozac, Zoloft and similar medications. 

The Northwest Clinical Research Center is participating in a new clinical trial that consists of the use of novel investigational medication.  We are seeking volunteers with trichotillomania to participate in this clinical trial evaluating if the study medication reduces the desire to pull hair.  

No Cost Study

There is no cost to participate in the study, and the study participant who is eligible will receive the following:

  • Medical Evaluation.
  • Investigational Medication.
  • Study Related Medical Care.
  • Compensation up to $450. 
  • Complimentary transportation or a travel stipend.
