    It has been reported as an side effect of Plaquenil - hair loss or bleaching of the hair, if you think its too bothersome, please ask your doc/pharmacist to prescribe some med which is more comfortable for your system. For the last 18 months, my hair has been thinning. Then my doctor found I had lupus. He will put me on Plaquenil soon, which he says may help the hair grow back. I have read frequent comments online that Plaquenil causes hair loss. Will Plaquenil help my hair grow in or cause it to fall out more? Dec 13, 2012 ~shalyserenee~ said. This post spoke pretty directly to me as I have both been on Plaquenil and have lost all my hair when I was originally diagnosed w Lupus 15 years ago and experienced some serious weight loss while on dialysis and thru the first few month after my kidney transplant alittle less than a year ago.

    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. Does anyone know how likely it is for hydroxychloroquine to cause hair loss? Weight loss is also listed as a side effect, I am up 15 Linda 8 mo into this drug👀😤😃😁Everyone is different. I’m not ill enough to of interest to him generally! I couldn't 100 % say it is due to the mets though but my hair has gone thinner since I started taking the meds. However, Hydroxychloroquine slows down and mitigates lupus symptomatology so it will slow up hair loss. The only real side effect is on vision in those susceptible to that; annual testing for a couple of years is advisable and if that is OK you can forget visual deterioration more or less. Being on iron and B vitamins no matter what the blood tests say about levels has pretty much settled my hair down.

    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.
