Hair loss with methotrexate

I have been experiencing hair loss from the medication for RA. I found an awesome product to cover that fact!!!!!!! Toppik which you order online but make sure you also order the applicator because it blends better. Also for those with sore achy feet FitFlops (sandals) which is the brand name allows me to walk painlessly. Both have made my dealing with RA much easier.

WOW! Thank you! I have just now started to have quite a bit of hair loss. I have lost about 1/2 my hair. Thankfully I have pretty thick hair so now I just look like everyone else, but to me, it feels like I have none.

Also, thanks for the tip about the shoes. The bottoms of my feet have been burning and hurting after standing for a long period of time. It even hurts to stand in the kitchen and cook. I cant wait to try both of these products.
