    Hydroxychloroquine to treat hair loss


    I’ve struggled with hair loss before (telogen effluvium) but it was put down to anemia and as long as I keep taking extra iron it’s ok. I do know that listing the weight loss is really ridiculous as most people / 70petcent say they GAIN! I’ve got some treatment from a Trichologist who has treated me before. Hi Amy G6500, I was on hydroxychloroquine for a couple of years and my hair was thickening, since coming off apart 9 months ago I have had significant loss, but not sure whether it’s down to that. (I have hair from the front but look bald from the back but then I am male and elderly - you need to find a way of covering the loss but Medicine will not be able to help at this point in time unless something very dramatic has snuck by me). As hair loss was a listed side effect of hydroxychloroquine I wanted to check. Actually I’m on B12 injections and my hair is the best it’s ever been. So keep coming on these boards and talking to the real people...patients! My hair loss 20 years ago was put down to anemia but no cause was found for the anemia.

    Hydroxychloroquine Plaquenil is considered a disease-modifying anti-rheumatic drug DMARD. It can decrease the pain and swelling of arthritis. It may prevent joint damage and reduce the risk of long-term disability. Hydroxychloroquine is in a class of medications that was first used to prevent and treat malaria. Hydroxychloroquine is usually taken with food or milk to prevent stomach upset. The dosage and length of treatment are based on your medical condition and response to therapy. In children, dosage is also based on weight. The actual stopping or slowing of hair loss is last. Hydroxychloroquine is among the slowest acting of all the typical oral immunomodulators such as doxycycline, methotrexate, mycophenolate and cyclosporine cyclosporine tends to be the most rapid. For my patients I often tell them that the “timer” does not start until 8 weeks into treatment.
