    Can i bleach my hair taking plaquenil for lupus


    I’ve struggled with hair loss before (telogen effluvium) but it was put down to anemia and as long as I keep taking extra iron it’s ok. I do know that listing the weight loss is really ridiculous as most people / 70petcent say they GAIN! I’ve got some treatment from a Trichologist who has treated me before. Hi Amy G6500, I was on hydroxychloroquine for a couple of years and my hair was thickening, since coming off apart 9 months ago I have had significant loss, but not sure whether it’s down to that. (I have hair from the front but look bald from the back but then I am male and elderly - you need to find a way of covering the loss but Medicine will not be able to help at this point in time unless something very dramatic has snuck by me). As hair loss was a listed side effect of hydroxychloroquine I wanted to check. Actually I’m on B12 injections and my hair is the best it’s ever been. So keep coming on these boards and talking to the real people...patients! My hair loss 20 years ago was put down to anemia but no cause was found for the anemia.

    This has lower incidence of retinal toxicity than plaquenil, but has other unique side effects that need to be monitored. Ultimately, you will need to discuss your particular situation with your rheumatologist, who can take into account your situation, lab tests and guide you most appropriately. But I still have episodes, which affect my hair some, but not nearly as much as before. I have to baby my hair strengthening conditioner, towel gently & then dry with a gentle dryer, wear hats, etc. FYI, Plaquenil can take 3-4 months to reach its full effect, so I hope that you'll see HUGE improvement in the coming weeks & months. Here are 10 things to keep in mind when using Plaquenil Take it on a regular schedule, meaning at the same time each day. Take Plaquenil EXACTLY as prescribed by your physician. Do not stop taking the medication without first speaking to your doctor. Taking Hydroxychloroquine with food and/or milk can help prevent stomach upset.

    If I’m on iron it’s mostly ok, if I stop it falls out. I also use a strengthening herbal treatment from a Trichologist once a month. Hi I started on hydroxychloroquine in November 17 and I have to say my hair has gone very thin and in bad condition (dry and doesn't seem to grow and due to thinning of my hair it is getting shorter).

  6. I lost most of my hair to lupus and was put on 300mg Hydroxychloroquine Common brand name Plaquenil about two years ago and as my hair grew back it was curly, really curly. Prior to that it was straight as a board. Ironically, I had a kidney/pancreas biopsy and was on Cellcept but that was after my hair grew back curly.

    I’ve struggled with hair loss before telogen effluvium but it was put down to anemia and as long as I keep taking extra iron it’s ok. Actually I’m on B12 injections and my hair is the best it’s ever been. I’ve read conflicting reports on this. Some even say it helps with lupus hair loss. Any experiences would be appreciated. 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. Hair loss may be an early sign of lupus, before the disease is diagnosed. But many other disorders can cause hair loss, so consult with your doctor if you notice unusual hair thinning or hair. Although as a caution I never would h.light my hair when going through severe hair loss or severe flare of skin/scalp. Just to add i did at one point not highlight my hair for over a year, but did not notice any improvement in lupus or improvement in condition etc. My hair before lupus and meds was very thick. Good luck x
