I've been on methotrexate for 5 weeks now...losing too much hair. Rheumy suggesting I switch to leflunomide. I read the side effects online. It seems more daunting than the mtx. Please if any of you have experiences you can share with me, good or bad, are welcome. I need to figure out if I should bear through mtx since, other than the hairloss, I handle it quite well. Perhaps I should start using Rogaine. I don't want to be a woman in her 30s going bald.
The side effects that are most disturbing to me regarding leflunomide are the tingling, numbness, back pain, skin rash, cold symptoms, and reduced white blood cells....seems so scary and odd 😥😢
Any advice please??
Thank you in advance!!
