Beyond CBT, some have reported benefit from the supplement NAC (N-Acetylcysteine) for relieving the urge to pull. A possible approach to discuss with one's doctor.

Hi feral1

Welcome to NeuroTalk .

There is some evidence which shows that N-acetylcysteine can be effective in management of trichotillomania.

This is discussed here http://www.psychiatryadvisor.com/obs...rticle/432260/.
