    Plaquenil steroids


    So I'm on Prednisone again after weaning off of it. thanks, nev There could be many reasons why you were put back on Prednisone. I don't get many side effects generally, but with prednisone I DO. It does help, but this can't be a long term affair. Plaquenil is a great drug (I have no experience with it, but many people with lupus take it).

    By Connie Rifenburg June 3, 2015 at pm. Ang, I had hair loss pretty severe when I first started on Prednisone, Plaquenil, and Methotrexate. I guess it may depend on the dosage, and hopefully your hair loss will stop as mine did after a few months. Hydroxychloroquine Plaquenil is used to treat malaria, lupus, and rheumatoid arthritis.
