Agree it's more the drugs than the disease itself. I had some hair loss with asacol, but extreme hair loss with 6mp. I also developed bald spots and I have extremely thick hair.
Same here. Had serious hair loss when taking Azathioprine. Hair grow back after quitting Aza. But no problem with Salofalk (Asacol).
