I've already lost about 1/3 of my hair. Dr. started me on Hydoxychloroquinel (generic for Plaquenil) yesterday and I read a side effect is hair loss. Anybody on this drug and have you lost your hair because of it? I don't want to lose any more!
I have been on Plaquenil for many years now and I have never had a problem with hair loss or thinning of hair. Quite possibly, if you are on other meds also, the mix of them could be doing it. I am on quite a bit of meds, but have not had that problem, actually, have had no ill side effects at all. Hope all goes well with you and you find the cause of your problem. God Bless...
