My rhuemy nurse told me I wasn't allowed to take any supplements, including vitamins, whilst on methotraxate. This is to prevent liver damage. I wasn't even allowed over the counter cold remedies so check before you start anything.

I dont think you lose that much hair, It just thins it a lot but then stops after a while, I have been on mtx for 15 months and after a while your hair stops falling out, although it does dry out a bit so make sure you use a realy good conditioner. t.c.

This subjects been talked about on another forum that I read. One lady said that her nurse told her to take zinc supplements, but most people had to increase their intake of folic acid, this was advised by their specialist nurses If you've got a specialist nurse, if I was you I would ring her up and see about increasing your folic acid.

Hope this helps.
