From the beginning of treatment my rheumy put me on 400mg of Plaquenil daily. I take one pill in the morning and one at night. I struggled sticking to my meds and treatment plan for the first couple months or my diagnosis because I was in denial and didn't really believe it so I just recently started taking my medications again as prescribed (I was diagnosed October 2015).
