I am newly on plaquenil, consistenly i have been taking it for only 10 days. I have had eye irritaion (4days) and today blurry vision hit hard, i have good healthy eye sight.

currently I'm almost done with two weeks on 25 mg of prednisone and it should be dropping soon, it was 30 mg the two weeks before that, my main problem is I CANT SLEEEP.

Can anyone give me any information about how sick you have gotten when taking Cellcept? My doc wants to start me on 1 pill twice a day and ramp up to 3 pills twice a day. Does it make you very sick? I'm not sure exactly what to expect.
I dont know whats going on because ive dealt with dry mouth for years and had it under control for the most part but the past 5 days have been horrible. Absolutely NO saliva and water, gum, biotene, restricting sodium - nothing is helping. 100% dry. Intolerabe. Dont know what to do or change. Has a sudden and acute onset/relapse happened to anyone else and if so, what made it go away? I know what sjogrens, etc. Is so not asking what i have - aski g what to do for the acute flare up.
