As you can guess from the title, I now have a beautiful melasma mustache and melasma across my cheeks and forehead. It's great.

    • Is taken birth control pills and Plaquenil a cause for..

    I'm 59 and suffered fot yrs. the fatigue is the worst and nothing makes it go away. For the severe joint pain, and I mean severe, I've been on prednisone 10 mg a day and plaquenil, but it's too early to tell if the plaquenil's working since it can take 4 to 6 months. With one dose of the prednisone the joint pain went away. The pill is a VERY common cause of dark spots in women. About 30% of women using oral estrogen report having melasma like facial pigmentation. Treatment of hormone-induced melasma works best after breastfeeding has stopped, a woman is no longer pregnant, or her contraceptives have changed. If you experience stomach upset while taking generic hydroxychloroquine, ask your doctor about trying name-brand Plaquenil instead. While these medications contain the same active ingredient, the preparation of generic hydroxychloroquine can sometimes cause stomach irritation that usually does not occur with the brand name Plaquenil.

    It has been reported as an side effect of Plaquenil - hair loss or bleaching of the hair, if you think its too bothersome, please ask your doc/pharmacist to prescribe some med which is more comfortable for your system. The Palquenil can't cure the Sjgrens, and the Lyrica takes care of most of my pain. No one seems to want to prescribe certain pain meds for fear of addiction. If I take after my mom, I'll have bald spots by the time I'm in my 70's... Just found out it could be from the hydroxychloroquine. I was told Accutane doesn’t cause hair loss 10 years ago, and now it’s listed as a side effect.
