I've been on mtx since begining of Aug. Now up to 15mg also. My hair is thin and falling out and my nails break alot to the extreme that I woke up one morning and one of my nails had broken off nearly to the bottom. Two months ago pain still bad and CRP had Only gone down to 38.5 so Rheumy said it was obvious pills weren't being absorbed so two weeks ago started giving it to myself in injection form. Maybe this would be worth discussing with ur Rheumy. With regards folic acid, u should take at least 15mg in a week as that's the dose of mtx ur on. I was on 15mg but because of repeated mouth sores I now take 5mg daily except mtx day. I hope this has been of some help to u! Go Well X
