I was on it for about 8 months - started noticing my hair falling out too. I also have scalp psoriasis so I wasn’t sure if it was that but I am changing medication just in case.

It helped me a lot, but my hair was falling out. Not like an OMG falling out, just more so than usual. I had to stop taking it for knee surgery. When I began again, my blood pressure shot up. It could've been a combination of being in pain and having my bp up due to that. IDK. I have a virtual visit with my rheumy on Tuesday of next week, so I'll see. Good luck. If you can tolerate it, it works pretty well.
