    Plaquenil and hair thinning

    After seeing my rheumatologist, he wants to put me on Plaquenil, mostly because I complained of recent onset of thinning/loss of hair which is freaking me out.

    I am really interested in feedback regarding Plaquenil and hair growth. JPCA, I had hair thinning & severe breakage along the hairline, but not as severe as you described, I think... FYI, I don't have alopecia, and I never had "discoid" (scarring) lesions on my scalp. Anyone experience positive results from taking Plaquenil, if so, how long did it take to grow hair back.

  6. Lupus can cause the hair on your scalp to gradually thin out, although a few people lose clumps of hair. Loss of eyebrow, eyelash, beard and body hair also is possible. In most cases, your hair will grow back when your lupus is treated. But some people with lupus develop round discoid lesions on the scalp.

    Women tend to thin at the front and top of the scalp. While your instinct may be to drop the meds at the first sight of hair loss, you should weigh the benefits of the drug for your arthritis against this cost of hair loss. When to Talk to Your Doctor. 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. Fatigue and lack of sleep can also lead to hair loss for those who suffer from lupus. Try to get quality sleep each night and don’t overexert yourself. Avoid sun exposure. Sun exposure can cause photosensitivity in lupus patients and lead to rashes on the scalp which can contribute to hair loss.
