... I have taken plaquinil for 11 years and I have a lot of white hair but I have found that Herbal dyes such as over the counters work well to cover the white. I stopped once for a year and my hair did not regain it's color. Of course I have really dark hair so I am not sure if any blonde dyes will work to cover the whiteness. (3 replies)
... I read about Plaquenil hair bleaching on the Mayo Clinic or Johns Hopkins web site. I was trying to look up something about hair because my hair is white and I've been on Plaquenil for 4 years and my hair is turning yellow on top. I look like a smoker (which I'm not). My hair dresser has tried everything and they came to the conclusion it was my medication, so I started... (3 replies)
... I have been taking plaquenil for 12 years and I've never heard that before. I feel like my hair has gotten thinner and I feel like it is falling out a little but thats all. Could be something else. Keep searching the boards and you are bound to find some other info on it. (3 replies)

... Hi, again. Watoozie's comments made me remember something else my rheumie told me. In their practice, they'd collectively NEVER seen a single case of Plaquenil-induced damage. For perspective: it's a practice specializing in lupus (etc.), in a huge city, affiliated with a large teaching hospital, and has multiple drs. Interesting that several suburban drs., including...

... I also get my eyes checked every 6 months. My doctor says he has never seen anyone that Plaquenil did any damage to the eyes. My Rheumatologist insists I get checked every 6 months anyway. So I do!!!! (21 replies)

... Janmar & All, Plaquenil only very rarely causes melanin deposits on the retina. The best news here is that the deposits disappear if the drug is D/C'ed, per Dr. Wallace's hardcover lupus book. Also, he points out that many people on Plaquenil also take steroids, which are true culprits in blurry vision. Dr. Wallace devotes a whole section to this concern; and I felt much... (21 replies)

... My rheumatologist is INSISTENT on me having my eyes checked every year due to the Plaquenil. I do notice my eyes act up from time to time (more blurry than my astigmatism, colors, etc); but it goes away. So far nothing according to opthamologist. (21 replies)

... Hi, I am new on here. I have been on plaquinel for 4 weeks now. I am also taking 5 mg of prednisone a day. (I was taking 60 mg for a few weeks till I worked my way down to the 5 mg, over a 2 month period) I think the prednisone put me into a state of cushing syndrome (from the high dosages for so long). I was started on the high dosage of prednisone from my family PCP for an... (21 replies)

... Hi. I was diagnosed with Lupus anti-coagulant (vascular) about 7 years ago. I developed my first blood clot 26 years ago and they only named it as lupus recently. Lupus now also affects all my joints, particularly my hands, and the first major organ (pericardium - sac around heart). I also suffer from clinical depression and anxiety. As you can imagine I take a lot of... (21 replies)

... Hi Angie, Thanks, I do try and take some time for myself and that involves exercise when I feel well. I am frightened to lose strength without exercise. I just started the brand name of Plaquenil today instead of the generic version, it will be interesting to see if the itchiness stops...It is funny my job is related to counselling and here I am on the other side... oh well,...

... Janmar, I'm in the same boat as you. My first Rheumie diagnosed me with Lupus in May. I'm seeing a new Rhematologist in a couple of weeks and am hoping that she can tell me what I have. This will be the third Rheumie I have seen because the I got a new job and changed PCP's and the second one was rude and said if I had Lupus it was mild, etc. She thought I might have... (21 replies)

... Hi Mary, thanks for your reply. I guess I am not alone in this fight. I will be changing to the real brand name of Plaquenil, hopefully that will help. I don't know anything about sorjgen's syndrome, I am not sure I want to.... Yes, how true there are good days and bad days and for the most part I keep these feelings bottled up. I have rashes on my neck that are itchy and come... (21 replies)

... I've been taking Plaquenil for about 3 yrs and never had one side effect that I know of. I have read it's considered one of the more safe drugs, other than some people can develop some sort of eye problems. Right now I am getting some hives back here & there but I dont' think mine are Plaquenil related. (21 replies)
