Hair Loss

Does hair loss ftom Methotrexate stop or slow down . Does your hair ever grow back?

I lost my hair with it. My hair stylist (whose daughter has lupus) suggested I use this hair shampoo called "Malibu" - you can find it on Amazon. It comes in packets. It basically gets the medication out of your hair. I also had problems with my nails breaking and peeling, so I do the gel dip, which helps a lot.

I'm not on it anymore, but I have recommended it to people before. Best of luck to you. I really hope this helps. :)
