Re Plaquenil side effect hairloss My daughter started taking plaquenil April 2008 for UCTD. She was experiencing a small amount of hair loss at that time and we were told by the Dr. that plaquenil would help with her auto-immune disease and the hair loss.

    I thought Plaquenil is supposed to help with hair loss , not promote it Hi JPCA Sorry to hear about the negative effects you are experiencing from this drug. My hair loss seemed to get better after time, it is by far not thick as it was, but sure not as thin either. If so, does the hair loss subside after a while or will continue to fall out?
