I cannot remember after how long it started with MTX but after 4 or 5 months of taking Leflunomid I started losing my hair very heavily and it didn?t stop even after 3 and half months of not taking it

Only 3 weeks for me. I was reading somewhere that 1 out of 1000 gets hair loss from mtx. Tragic when it happens, I'm sure.

Denise, are you losing hair?

Nothing noticeable. I haven't been on it very long, November 2nd was my first dose at 2.5mg/piece.
