Compounded plaquenil?
« on: August 10, 2017, 10:32:38 AM »
My doc says that I won't have any side effects if I take compounded plaquenil. I understand that this could be true for digestive issues but is it true for hair loss as well?

The drug is the drug - it still has the possible side effects common to that drug.

What compounding could do is provide you with smaller doses per pill and/or inactive ingredients that you are not sensitive to, which could then reduce the likelihood of a reaction.
