Any advice would be most helpful, I am 29 weeks pregnant and due to having a very bad flare whilst pregnant I have to go on prednisone, I was on 15mg for 2 weeks, then 10mg and now 5 mg and am also on 200mg of plaquenil. It seems to be managing the symptoms ok but I have noticed in the last couple of week substantial hair loss. My hair was looking a lot thicker due to the pregnancy but that has now gone. Does anyone have an advice at all? Will this start to slow down? Is it the steroids or plaquenil? I am trying to get hold of my rheumatologist but they never pick up the phone. Thanks i advance for any help as I don't know what to do!
