Ritalin increasing hair pulling/stimming type behaviours

I have been on Ritalin about a year or two. I have gained way more weight, and also have developed quite the hair pulling issue. It's only when I sit, or zone out and I pull from one area. It's mostly the wiry growing in hairs, lol. Anything I feel like it's soothing, can't stop but don't recall this every happening on Adderall or prior. Could it be the Ritalin that is aggravating this? I find that there are other stimming type behaviours done more as well and won't notice right away etc.
