I've been on Imuran since Jan6 (225mg/d), and I've lost a LOT of hair. And I've had severe joint pain on twice. Is the hair loss normal? Is there any thing I can do to stop the hair loss? Also, is it ok to have a beer or wine while on Imuran? Thanks in advance.

I beg to differ, I took 6mp and lost alot of hair too. It is recommended that you take Folic Acid at least 1 mg to help offset the hairloss. Some folks also add Biotin to help too.

Good luck,
