Hair Not Growing Back While On Hydroxychloroquine

Hair Not Growing Back While On Hydroxychloroquine

On 400mg of Hydroxychloroquine for one year. After 3 months hair stopped falling out. For past 6 months hair is brittle and breaks off every day. I read in many articles that Hydroxy... helps hair to grow back. Any ideas or comments?
Also on Doxycycline Monohydrate for sore eyelids and to prevent rosacea/face rash.

I use a good quality shampoo and conditioner. Anyway the price indicates it should be. 😂 I do not wash it every day and quit using a straightener. Just letting it go wild.

I never heard of hydroxychloroquine helping hair grow back. I take it since 2019 and my hair continues to fall as it used to before taking it.

My hair tends to get brittle also. I don't wash everyday and also use hot oil treatments when it gets that way.
