I have been taking 15mg of Methotrexate for the last 3 year and my hair has thinned considerably and is receeding on both sides of my temple. I am 51 years of age and female and had a great head of hair. I wonder have any other women experienced this and is there anything I can take?
Your story is exactly the same as mine. I used to have such great hair, now I settle for just clean. I have been taking folic acid faithfully since starting the MTX --- if it's supposed to help keep me from loosing hair --- either it's not working or I'd hate to think what I would look like without it. Someone once told me that I should only wash my hair every other day, but I think that just postpones the fall-out.
