    Can plaquenil cause alopecia


    If so, does the hair loss subside after a while or will continue to fall out? I thought Plaquenil is supposed to help with hair loss , not promote it Hi JPCA Sorry to hear about the negative effects you are experiencing from this drug. My hair loss seemed to get better after time, it is by far not thick as it was, but sure not as thin either.

    I decided to give Plaquenil a go though, and I have been on it for 2 weeks. You are supposed to have a blood test every month to check on your liver and kidneys as long term use can affect them. I was told also to keep an eye out for 'floaters' in my eyes, as Plaquenil can cause macular damage to your retinas. Leflunomide Can Cause Hair Loss Leflunomide is another commonly prescribed DMARD for rheumatoid arthritis patients. The cause of the hair loss is similar to methotrexate and occurs in about 10 percent of users. Plaquenil is supposed to help with hair loss, not contribute to it. I would also suggest giving it some more time especially since the side effects of plaquenil are supposed to lessen after a few months of use.

    You should have been informed of the side effects which include: irritability, nervousness, emotional changes, nightmares, convulsions, nerve deafness, muscle weakness, blurred vision, light flashes, edema, bleaching of hair, alopecia, aplastic anaemia, anorexia and nausea. It took about 4 months to reap the full benefits from it, and I have had a few flares, but Plaquenil made me feel so much better!! I too have suffered drastic hairloss due to Lupus and it's for this precise reason that I am not taking the drug. The Plaquenil helped with my symptoms so much so that I would not want to be without it.

  5. I wasn't sure if it was the plaquenil or all the bleaching and coloring if done in the past couple years, so I can't be for sure which was the cause of my hair loss. It seems that it's leveled out, back to normal loss. Though I did stop bleaching my new growth. I'm taking a multivitamin with biotin, plus I got a natural biotin conditioner to help.

    Feb 19, 2020 What Is Plaquenil? Plaquenil hydroxychloroquine is an antimalarial medication used to treat or prevent malaria, a disease caused by parasites, which enter the body through the bite of a mosquito. Plaquenil is also used to treat symptoms of rheumatoid arthritis and discoid or systemic lupus erythematosus. Plaquenil is available in generic form. Also out of most of the other drugs used to treat RA, plaquenil is probably the least likely option to cause hair loss. I think it's definitely worth trying to lower your dose before trying another med. Also look into other factors that may be causing this, most rheumatic conditions cause hair loss, it might not be related to a medication at all. Lynwood, I can't answer your question about weight gain or loss on plaquenil but I did go off plaquenil a few months ago and haven't been the same since. I regret the decision which had I made because I'd felt pretty well for quite some time and was doing my best to slowly get off as many meds as possible.
