    Plaquenil used for hair loss


    Plaquenil is used to treat or prevent malaria, a disease caused by parasites that enter the body through the bite of a mosquito. Malaria is common in areas such as Africa, South America, and Southern Asia.

    Leflunomide, or Arava, is another widely-used DMARD for RA with the potential for hair loss side effects. Leflunomide, which is often prescribed in combination with methotrexate, causes hair loss similar to the way methotrexate does in about 10. Sometimes, Taylor may also inject cortisone into the scalp or use Plaquenil, a drug typically used for malaria, lupus and sarcoidosis. Doctors said hair products are likely not the cause of female hair loss, so perms and dyes probably won't hurt you. Hair loss is found among people who take Plaquenil, especially for people who are female, 50-59 old, have been taking the drug for 1 - 6 months, also take medication Enbrel, and have Psoriatic arthropathy.

    Plaquenil is also an antirheumatic medicine and is used to treat symptoms of rheumatoid arthritis and discoid or systemic lupus erythematosus. This medicine is not effective against all strains of malaria.

  5. 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.

    Plaquenil is generally well-tolerated, but side effects are possible. Common side effects linked to Plaquenil include nausea and diarrhea. Taking the medication with food eases nausea for most people taking the drug. Less common side effects include skin rashes, hair thinning, and weakness. 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. Now I have been on Plaquenil for 7 months, my hair loss is getting really worse. I started shedding a lot in March and now I am really loosing my hair. I just found out that one of the rare side effects of Plaquenil IS hair loss from this website, and other website states it is one of the common side effects of Plaquenil.
