There is little to suggest it would but there have been isolated claims of hair color change.

Skin pigmentation, either hyper or vitiligo, can indicate other disorders. Many of these disorders have symptoms which your doctor may recognize as depression without digging into biochemical causes.

For example, hemochromatosis causes skin hyper pigmentation commonly. It also has about an 80% coincidence of hypogonadism in men. No testosterone combined with lethargy, stressed liver may feel like depression. Blood test can check ferritin iron levels but a liver panel with counts for ACE, ALT and AST might warrant additional testing.

Or take Addison's disease, with minimal adrenal response, messed up salt levels and pigmentation issues. Again, you're going to feel tired and experience mood disturbances that may suggest depression.

Or how about low thyroid, vitiligo is a symptom. Vitiligo is absence of pigment but hyper pigmentation can occur around these patches.

I would have a blood test to look at endocrine, salt, iron and liver counts. Otherwise, you may be on to something.

I am not a doctor. I am taking Wellbutrin for smoking..

Are self-tanning products dangerous to your skin?

Self tanning lotions are NOT dangerous to your skin. The only potential hazard is believing that the layer of fake tan gives you any protection from sun rays - which it doesn't. So as long as you remember to use sufficient amounts of sun screen, there is no reason to lay off the self tan. The self tanning lotions only give your skin cells a superficial layer of color, like a long lasting make-up. Despite the rumors, it has nothing to do with the pigmentation of the skin. Self tanning injections and pills on the other hand are made to boost pigmentation and may cause skin cancer.

Will Wellbutrin help with GAD?

Likely not. I actually BLAME wellbutrin for being one of a few factors in exacerbating GAD in me, it seems as though wellbutrin kicks up (prevents reuptake) of chemicals often responsible for elevated attention... so while many or most people may not find wellbutrin to cause or elevate anxiety, its unlikely to help. (other factors in my anxiety being adderall and marijuana, a past history of cocaine use and abrupt cessation of cigarette smoking/cocaine)
