I have been on Pentasa for almost 5 years. I am not sure if it has "worked" or not. I was originally on Asacol which was not helping, so I believe it has been working fairly well. I too have noticed some hair loss, does folic acid remedy this problem?

Folic acid is supposed to help - but I have never noticed any benefit from it. It has other uses and you should be taking a vitamin supplement just to avoid malnutrition due to Crohn's inflammation causing malabsorption.
