    Is gastrointestinal problems common from plaquenil


    In Sjögren’s, Plaquenil is used to treat many symptoms of Sjögren’s including fatigue, joint symptoms of arthritis and arthralgias (joint pain), dry mouth and dry eyes. Similar to its use in systemic lupus erythematosus, many clinicians feel that it is useful in reducing general Sjögren’s “disease activity.” One of the reasons that physicians feel comfortable in prescribing Plaquenil is its low risk to benefit ratio.

    But stomach problems seem to be directly related to how sjogrens affects me anyway. I think it's ironic that the routine medication for it also can cause stomach issues. Nevertheless, I decided the stomach pain was more than I could live with and I really could not tell a significant difference in inflammation reduction when I was taking it. Hydroxychloroquine HCQ, sold under the brand name Plaquenil among others, is a medication used for the prevention and treatment of certain types of malaria. Specifically it is used for chloroquine-sensitive malaria. Other uses include treatment of rheumatoid arthritis, lupus, and porphyria cutanea tarda. It is taken by mouth.

    Bafilomycin A1 Inhibits Chloroquine-Induced Death of. Treatment of cells with the macrolide antibiotic bafilomycin A1, an inhibitor of vacuolar V-ATPase, or with the lysosomotropic agent chloroquine, has been shown to pharmacologically inhibit autophagy as evidenced by an accumulation of autophagosomes, which in turn causes Bax-dependent apoptosis. However, bafilomycin A1 has also been reported to inhibit chloroquine-induced apoptosis.
