    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. The Palquenil can't cure the Sjgrens, and the Lyrica takes care of most of my pain. No one seems to want to prescribe certain pain meds for fear of addiction. If I take after my mom, I'll have bald spots by the time I'm in my 70's... Just found out it could be from the hydroxychloroquine. I was told Accutane doesn’t cause hair loss 10 years ago, and now it’s listed as a side effect.
