    Weaning off plaquenil


    I've been on plaquenil for 6 months for suspected Sjogren's syndrome (I don't have antibodies for Sjorgren's or Lupus but I do have Hashimoto's and have all the symptoms for Sjorgren's so the rheumatologist suggested a trial of plaquenil). Basically I've been on the drug since January and saw the rheumatologist on Wednesday to see how things are going.

    Been on Plaquenil only for ten years for sarcoidosis. Once in awhile I also had to have a burst of prednisone. I have been weaning off since my sarcoidosis has been stable for eight years. I went from 400 mg. Daily to 200 daily to 200 every other day over the course of six months. I stopped it about 10 days ago and I feel like I’m 90 years old. Plaquenil hydroxychloroquine is considered an older DMARD disease modifying anti-rheumatic drug. Plaquenil was actually first classified as an antimalarial drug, but it is also used to treat certain rheumatic and autoimmune conditions which are unrelated to malaria. Generally, Plaquenil is a treatment option as monotherapy used alone for mild rheumatoid arthritis or as combination. Steroid drug withdrawal facts; Are steroids anti-inflammatories?

    I do think it's helped with fatigue and muscle pain but it's hard for me to compare to Xmas as when the improvement is so gradual I think it's really hard to notice on a gradual basis. I *think* I'm improving but it's been a gradual process and I said to him that it's quite hard to tell how much of an improvement I'm feeling.

  7. One of the problems with Plaquenil is that because it's so slow to act, the improvements are also slow and subtle. So most people don't realize that they've improved until they STOP taking it. I've been on it twice, along with Atabrine another antimalarial. In my case, it never worked so I didn't notice a change.

    Years ago I took Plaquenil - It worked great at first then My Hair started falling out like a chemo victim after taking for 5 months. Ironic because I've been taking Enbrel for 4 months now and experiencing problems of flu like symptoms for 2-3 days after every shot. So she is having me start sulfasalazine---- do any of you take this and even better do any of you take this along with plaquenil and/or prednisone because until I can wean myself off the awful prednisone I will be taking all three medicines. I recently decided to stop taking Plaquenil because I was having constant chest pains even more so than I usually have due to Lupus. Since I have not taken it my chest feels so much better which is odd because chest pain is not listed as a side effect.

    My current treatment protocol for chronic Lyme and fibromyalgia Fed. I very rarely give an update on my health status, but I’ve had several people over the past weeks ask for the details of my current treatment protocol for chronic Lyme and fibromyalgia. Since it’s easier to write it out once instead of multiple times, I’ve decided to share it in a post for those

    Getting sunburnt & plaquenil! • Versus Arthritis formerly. Hi Suzie On reading blurb about Plaquenil it says it may cause you to become sunburned more easily. Avoid the sun, sunlamps, or tanning booths until you know how you react to Plaquenil. Use a sunscreen or wear protective clothing if you must be outside for more than a short time.
