    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.

    Mar 17, 2019 Hydroxychloroquine is also an antirheumatic medicine and is used to treat symptoms of rheumatoid arthritis and discoid or systemic lupus erythematosus. Important information Taking hydroxychloroquine long-term or at high doses may cause irreversible damage to the retina of your eye. However, Hydroxychloroquine slows down and mitigates lupus symptomatology so it will slow up hair loss. It will not exacerbate the problem. The only real side effect is on vision in those susceptible to that; annual testing for a couple of years is advisable and if that is OK you can forget visual deterioration more or less. 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.

    If I’m on iron it’s mostly ok, if I stop it falls out. I also use a strengthening herbal treatment from a Trichologist once a month. Hi I started on hydroxychloroquine in November 17 and I have to say my hair has gone very thin and in bad condition (dry and doesn't seem to grow and due to thinning of my hair it is getting shorter).
