Has Anyone had Immediate eyesight changes (blurred vision, dark sight, problems re-focusing after opening theyre eyes, etc) after starting back on plaquenil? Please let me know ASAP.
I'm not able to take plaquenil for my SLE/ Sjorgrens due to the fact that plaquenil can lower your red and whites cell count.. With my thalassemia I can't have that. My cell count is already low... So are there any other medications for SLE that will help?
Anyone, especially those on Plaquenil year or more, have tremors and weakness of eyelids, arms and legs? Sometimes a hoarse voice and shallow breathes (cant take deep breathe in)? Neurologists say not seizures, stroke or Parkinsons. Pharmacy paperwork lists as side effects of Plaquneil but rheumotologist and pharmacist said no?
Has anyone here not had much success using Plaquenill 200 mg twice daily? Ive been on it for 9 months as well as taking Meloxicam 15 mg once daily. My symptoms improved for a few months but I am starting to go back down hill with overall aches, pains, and extreme fatigue. My rheumatologist wants me to try adding Azathioprine (Imuran) in about a month once I’m fully over a sinus infection. Looking for insight on Azathioprine as its not quite as easy to find info on compared to Plaquenil… read more

It started out with these ugly, itchy red hives on my left arm. Overnight, they spread to my right arm. Then, within a few more hours they spread to my legs and trunk. It was awful!!! They burned and itched and made me physically ill.
Thankfully, Benadryl and a steroid dose pack has the hives on… read more
I have been on Plaquinel since diagnosis. It definitely worked for me initially-- particularly with fatigue. However, I never completely got rid of the aching in my muscles and I still have flares where I am severely crippled from the soreness in my joints and muscles. So I am wondering if it is still working? Is this normal on plaquinel or should my symptoms be gone entirely? Is it preventing my disease from progressing as my doctor has suggested?
My flareup has lasted almost 5 months with a lot of pain tingling and burning in both hands. I started taking plaqueni. Is this normal to have a flareup this long and when will the medicine start to work?
