I have taken Enbrel for about 3 years. I had to stop taking it for 2 months because I changed jobs and lost my health insurance. During that time, my hair started falling out. Has anyone experienced this with Enbrel? My primary doc checked my blood and everything looked normal. I am hoping it will stop.

Thanks,
Becky

Several years ago, I was getting episodes of hair loss. They gradually became so severe that I could see my scalp on top of my head, and began researching wigs. Like you, doctors and tests yielded nothing.

I then did a lot of research on vitamins/supplements for hair loss, and started taking them. After about 3-4 months on the following regimen, my hair loss stopped, and has never returned.

This is what I take each day:

B-complex - 50mg
Biotin - 5,000 mcg
MSM - 4-5,000 mg
Activated Silica - Jarrow Forumula's "JarroSil" - 15 drops daily

Best of luck to you!

Thanks. I purchased those items and have been taking them for awhile now. I know it will take time to see results but it seems some of the hair is already growing back.

That is great!!! Just keep sticking with them and I am sure you will do fine. Doesn't it feel good to know that there is something that helps with this problem? I was so relieved when my hair no longer fell out.

i was noticing an increase in hair loss when i started MTX and Humira. Rheumy put me on Biotin and that has helped a lot---although has not removed the issue completely.
