i’ve been on gilenya since april and also have thick curly hair. i’ve not noticed any particular problems with this side effect. its not vain to want to retain hair, and i’ve been told is especially hard for a woman to suffer hair loss.
if you’ve not noticed hair loss, then don’t worry; if you have then speak to your ms nurse or gp. this poxy condition is hard enough to manage without the added indignity of horrible side effects, so don’t feel bad for feeling bad.
one more thing- i’ve been told that worrying about hairloss is futile as it exacerbates the feeling that you’re losing hair when in fact it doesn’t necessarily mean you are, or at least not to the extent that you may think
take care, fluffyollie xx
