Folinic acid

My specialist has prescribed me Folinic acid. Anyone else tried this? Supposed to help with MTHX hair loss.

Folinic acid is sometimes used in place of folic acid. They are slightly different chemicals, but both do the same sort of things, and can help side effects of MTX like hair loss. As ever, this is all very individual so fingers crossed that it'll be the one to help you.


I'm taking folic acid as well. So both should do the trick
