    What people lose their hair when on plaquenil


    Regardless of the problem, we'd like to help you find what you're looking for. I'd like to preface this by saying I haven't tested positive for anything yet so I'm unsure what kind of autoimmune disease I have, but my Rheumatologist still wants me to start on a super low dose of Plaquenil (200mg daily) to see if my symptoms improve.

    Hair loss is found among people who take Plaquenil, especially for people who are female, 50-59 old, have been taking the drug for 1 - 6 months, also take medication Enbrel, and have Psoriatic arthropathy I read that hair loss can be a side effect but the literature on RX from CVS says that's a "more serious" side effect and I should contact my doctor. However, it seems like there are a lot of posts on here and elsewhere about people losing hair because of Plaquenil. I saw my rheumatologist yesterday, and he said the hair loss could be from taking Plaquenil. But he said it could be from getting older. Well, the hair loss started happening about six months after I began taking the Plaquenil and over a few months I lost 40% of my hair. So it is my opinion that the hair loss cause wasn't old age but the Plaquenil.

    She gave me a Plaquenil pamphlet that mentioned hair bleaching, and I imagined it to be kind of nice like how people who spend time in the sun & pool get naturally lightened hair. If I see any improvements then she wants me to stay on it for life.

  4. After the first couple months I noticed that my hair was "shedding" a lot. When I brought the concern up to my rheumatologist he said that the hair loss was "probably" due to lupus itself & not the result of taking plaquenil! I found his response strange given the fact that I wasn't losing hair prior to taking plaquenil.

    But some people with lupus develop round discoid lesions on the scalp. Because these discoid lesions scar your hair follicles, they do cause permanent hair loss. Lupus can also cause the scalp hair along your hairline to become fragile and break off easily, leaving you with a ragged appearance known as lupus hair. Yes, Plaquenil can cause alopecia or hair loss. Plaquenil hydroxychloroquine is used to treat or prevent malaria, a disease caused by parasites. Parasites that cause malaria typically enter the body through the bite of a mosquito. Malaria is common in areas such as Africa, South America, and Southern Asia. Weeks, but the hair loss started a year ago. I have heard that folic acid helps with hair loss - is that true? Some people say their hair loss is helped with plaquenil, but I know my hair has been crap for a year so not sure what to expect. Vanity will prevent me from going bald because if the plaquenil makes it worse, I will stop it.

    Methotrexate may be considered for the treatment of psoriasis or rheumatoid arthritis if other treatments have failed. Side effects can be severe and potentially fatal so a full assessment of the risks versus benefits is required before methotrexate is prescribed.
