    Taking folic acid can help to make up for, or supplement, the folate that your body loses when you take methotrexate. Folic acid supplements, which are taken orally, can help decrease the side. The different treatment schedules with folic acid can lead to questions as to what is the right one. Rheumatologist Scott Zashin, a clinical assistant professor at the University of Texas Southwestern Medical School says, "I have my patients take it daily, including the day of methotrexate. Hello hope everyone is well just a quick question, i have been on methotrexate for 2 months increasing from 7.5 to 15 and now to 25mg.weekly now been given plaquenil 400mg daily, has anyone else been on this mixture and has it worked or how long should i wait to see if it works.

    I've taken them for about 3 years now and have gained some growth although my eye brows have never grown back. much more important things in our worlds to worry about eye brows right? I am 38 and I am so mad that this is happening to me. Iguess I should be happy that I still have my hair for now. / I thought one was suppose to loose it on this medication?? And it usually doens't cause hair loss...it's rare but can happen. And it is upsetting to lose hair - it's a BIG deal to women. Everytime I took a shower it just came out in my hands and ALOT in the drain. The capsules are MUCH easier to swallow than the tablets (they are huge). I'm 39 and have had hair loss from plaquenil...needless to say I'm not taking plaquenil anymore. Happy birthday and happy hair growth I was on Arava for just a couple of months, and suffered alot of hair loss.

  4. What is the dosage of plaquenil
  5. I have been taking folic acid for a good while now. I do have my liver fuction checked every 3 months as well. I took MTX a few years ago and actually felt good while taking it, but it did raise my liver enzymes and I had to stop it. Actually, I have tried all the meds to treat lupus throughout the years, but most I can't take.

    Folic acid and folinic acid are forms of vitamin B9, which you need to keep your cells dividing and growing normally. Folic acid is also essential in the production of red blood cells. Methotrexate blocks some of the actions of folic acid, which can lead to side effects such as mouth sores, abdominal pain, liver problems, hair loss, and anemia. I worked with my doctor and we reduced the levels and now I have been experiencing the benefits of using methotrexate and getting my life back again. We are not a textbook and need to tweak the doses for our body chemistry. I also take folic acid with it to counteract the negative side effects. I was told I need my eyes checked regularly because of plaquenil, I didn't want to stay on prednisolone everyday low doses as it makes you hungry and bloats you puts weight on. It is like a wonder drug! Yes but it like any drug has side effects. Look it up and talk to Dr. This is the first time I have heard about people on Folic acid, why is.
