Does the hair loss ever stop?
« on: October 08, 2017, 09:11:14 PM »
Since I started Plaquenil I've started getting some hair loss. It's been nearly a year and I'm still on steroids and Plaquenil. It's getting to the point where I have to use "root spray" for hair color to hide how bad it's getting. I can't afford a lot, but I am taking Biotin and prenatal vitamins. It seemed to slow down and then I had a month or two where I couldn't get biotin and it's falling out in clumps. I've got more Biotin, I'm just frustrated.

Don't look to the past, there's nothing new there for you.

Hi  :)

My hairdresser told me to take a zinc supplement. It has really helped. My hairloss was from an underactive thyroid rather than Plaquenil or SjS.
