    Hi aokech, I know exactly what you are talking about. I was on MTX and Prednisone, and still am on Plaquenil and I have had hair loss and thinning for some time now. I have a very good hair dresser and she knows what to do and my hair has started to grow back nicely and is much longer than it used to be. Dec 13, 2012 ~shalyserenee~ said. This post spoke pretty directly to me as I have both been on Plaquenil and have lost all my hair when I was originally diagnosed w Lupus 15 years ago and experienced some serious weight loss while on dialysis and thru the first few month after my kidney transplant alittle less than a year ago. Plaquenil will eventually help your hair loss, but that will be a very slow process over a long period of time since plaquenil builds up in your body pretty slowly. And you should keep your head a scalp protected from the sun as VeeJ said.
