What were you taking methotrexate for and how long did you take it for?

I have RA and I was taking 3 tablets at 2.5 MG every Saturday for 6 months. I quit taking methotrexate 4 months ago and my daily hair loss has not decreased. I am wondering how long will the hair loss continue?

It's hard to say exactly when you hair will stop falling ... but it will eventually. Plus everyone is different. I know a little girl who has leukemia. She was on higher strengths for a long time but her hair stopped falling (sort of stabilized) even while she was taking methotrexate.
