I was on mtx for my Crohn's, for about 5 years, along with folic acid. I recently was able to stop taking both. (Still on Humira) Not long after, my hair started falling out. A lot. So I restarted the folic acid, thinking that was the problem. 3 months later, and I'm still shedding. Not quite as fast, but I'll be bald soon if it continues. Being female, this is a problem for me. I've added extra biotin and a collagen powder. I talked to my PCP, who talked to a derm. She said it's totally possible with stopping mtx. Should only last about 90 days or so. Can take up to a year to notice regrowth. So technically I should be at the end of this, but I'm afraid it's not going to stop!
