Those of you worried about hair loss..

After 4 months on the drug, my hair has finally stopped falling out like crazy. Fortunately I had a lot of hair to begin with and no one else besides me even noticed.

Just wanted to share since I know it's a big concern to many others out there.

I have hair down to my rear. And it's been falling out like crazy because of Pentasa and surgery, etc.

Terrified of Imuran on top of it! I'd be bald!
