Hair loss

I have just started Humira about 6 weeks ago and I am having excessive hair loss, is this normal?

I've never been on Humira, but when my disease was really active, I lost a significant amount of my hair. It got to the point that I didn't want to shower because it came out so rapidly, the hair would cling to my body in the shower. Once I started Remicade and entered/maintained remission my hair has grown back entirely. Don't lose hope, maybe even rock a shorter cut to make it more manageable.
