    Percentage of people with hair loss on plaquenil


    In Sjögren’s, Plaquenil is used to treat many symptoms of Sjögren’s including fatigue, joint symptoms of arthritis and arthralgias (joint pain), dry mouth and dry eyes. Similar to its use in systemic lupus erythematosus, many clinicians feel that it is useful in reducing general Sjögren’s “disease activity.” One of the reasons that physicians feel comfortable in prescribing Plaquenil is its low risk to benefit ratio.

    Plaquenil can change the pigmentation in the skin, so it would stand to reason that it can do the same with hair. I have experienced the change in pigmentation on my legs. It looks like I have a huge bruise on the back of my leg which extends from the calf to the ankle. I call it a perma-bruise. In fact, the derm prescribes it to patients with autoimmune hair loss conditions. I think it's possible that people associate hair loss with Plaquenil rather than the progression of their disease SjS itself can cause hair loss or with age and genetics unfortunately, we women can also suffer from androgenic alopecia. Alopecia areata is an autoimmune condition resulting in hair loss and complete baldness alopecia totalis. Published evidence says that it is mediated by T-lymphocytes. Plaquenil is an anti-inflammatory drug approved by the FDA for malaria, lupus erythematosus, and rheumatoid arthritis.

    As with any medication, allergic reactions including skin rashes and non-allergic reactions can occur. This means that the side effects of Plaquenil are mild and infrequent compared with its potential benefits.

  3. Aug 30, 2019 Methotrexate is the most commonly prescribed disease-modifying antirheumatic drug DMARD for rheumatoid arthritis and causes hair loss in about 1 to 3 percent of patients. Methotrexate works by stopping the cells that cause inflammation from growing, and, as a result, can stop hair follicles from growing too.

    Dec 27, 2018 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? 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. Did your hair loss start within a few weeks or beginning of your use of plaquenil? Sep 05, 2016 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.
