since I started taking Humira weekly about 6 months ago I've been loosing hair! I talked to Humira Progress Team and they say it's not A side affect but I putting this out there because I'm sure that's what's doing it. Am I alone on this one??
I have been on weekly Humira Pen (adalimumab 40mg) for about 3 months and I have noticed significant hair loss the last few weeks. The only thing that has changed in my life is the addition of Humira. I am satisfied this is causing the hair loss. However it has decreased my levels of joint pain, irritable bowel, and blurred vision issues. I am currently able to function at a higher level than I have been able to for several years. I have been warned that it will lower my immune system so I have become more reclusive. My Best to you all.Jeff
I started taking Humira three months ago for my psoriasis. I am 72 years old and have had psoriasis since I was 15, in that time I have only had three bad episodes, the last was four months ago, it covered my entire body except for my face, even the palms of my hands and bottom of my feet. My scalp was completely covered and the Humira had no affect on it so I blamed that on my hair loss. My doctor gave me some drops to put on my scalp which helped, but my hair loss continued so am sure it is the Humira... I have to weigh which is worse... my bad skin or hair loss.
