Hi, I've been taking methotrexate for RA. I have experienced hair thinning. I was told that this should improve over time but I'm afraid I have been taking it for over two years now and so far nothing has changed. However the benefit I get from the methotrexate far out ways the hair loss. I hope your hair loss improves over time for you. Best wishes Alison
Ps. I meant to say I take 25 mg of methotrexate weekly.

Yes, my doctor prescribed Folic Acid to help with the thinning. I would definitely ask your doctor about this.
