Over the past couple months I have been losing hair. Not the typical few strands, but huge chunks.. especially when I shower! At first I thought this was from anemia, but my bloodwork showed that I'm no longer very anemic. Then I discovered that plaquenil can have a side effect of hair loss. But I also know that lupus can too. I brought this up with my doctor and all he said was to take vitamin B.. which is silly because I'm already on two different multivitamins. My next appt isn't until the end of August and my formerly thick hair is now pathetically thin. I've taken things in my own hands and stopped taking the plaquenil. It's too soon to tell for sure if it's making a difference, but now my hands are so inflammed. Anyone else have a similar problem? Any suggestions? Thanks in advance!
