: I am taking methotrexate, and I am losing alot of hair every day. I wonder if anyone has found a way to stop the loss- My doctor doesn't seem too concerned, but it's really depressing to have had thick hair, and then pull out bunches every day. Does Rogaine work?
: Is it safe? Thanks for any feedback.
Have had some hair loss with methotrexate at higher doseages. My rhuematologist just
switched me to methotrexate injections, which is supposed to decrease side effects. Maybe
that can help you? Usually once you stop the med, hair grows back quickly. It's a chemo drug,
although given in much higher doseages for cancer.
