Methotrexate interferes with the growth of certain cells of the body, especially cells that reproduce quickly, such as cancer cells, bone marrow cells, and skin cells.
Methotrexate is used to treat certain types of cancer of the breast, skin, head and neck, or lung. It is also used to treat severe psoriasis and rheumatoid arthritis.
2.5mg methotrexate is a low dose so hopefully you don't experience any side effects. The link below has known side effects of methotrexate and yes, hair loss is a side effect of methotrexate.
Hello amy, recently my dad died and he was in good health accept he had arthritis not rheumitoid arthritis. His doctor put him on methotrexate and it stopped him from making red cells and he died quickly. Please get a second opinion and make sure you get frequent blood test. I have read this before. Ginger
