How long have you been on the prednisone? I've been on it since I had my first RA symptoms and was diagnosed back in December. I've been on 10mg since then and recently went up to 15mg. I have gained weight but no additional hair...as of yet anyway. If the plaquenil isn't helping I would probably move on to the methotrexate...of course this depends on how long you've been on the plaquenil as it can take a few months to work. I am currently on Prednisone, Plaquenil, Methotrexate, Folic Acid, Voltaren, Prevacid, Ultram and I started on Enbrel about a month ago. My rheumatologist is being fairly aggressive in treatimg me and in trying to find a regimen that works.

I wish you luck in finding the right combo :)
