One of my main symptom is a severe hair loss. It's diffuse but more pronounced on top of my head At the on-set of this disease almost two years ago, I've lost more then 70% of my hair (on top). I've always had very thick and straight hair, but now I can see through the scalp and the little regrowth is so much thinner and wavy. I am now on Plaquenil (started 2 weeks ago) My question is: does Plaquenil help with hair regrowth? Anyone experience positive results from taking Plaquenil, if so, how long did it take to grow hair back. I am really interested in feedback regarding Plaquenil and hair growth. I want my hair back....
I have been losing my hair for a little more than a year now. I am on prednisone. I haven't lost quite as much as you have, but probably 35 to 40% of mine. I use to have very thick hair with plenty of body to it. You can now see my scalp around my part and especially where I have cowelicks ( I know I murdered that spelling) it almost appears as if I have a bald spot. My hair does appear thinner in the front also. I just went through a severe shedding spell. Like veej I try to be very delicate with my hair. Some of my problem is thyroid, I just also went very hypothyroid and I know that contributed to it.

I guess I am lucky to have had such thick hair I still look ok, and the body to my hair keeps it from looking flat. I however can't seem to notice any new growth. Don't know if it is my age, or being postmenopausal. I have also lost all my leg hair. Haven't figured all this out yet.

He said it would help, but didnt hold up much hope of my hair coming back, on plaquenil two weeks now and hair has stopped falling out and some growth on the back of my head but not sure its related to the drugs
