    Abruptly stopping plaquenil


    I was told I didn't have to taper it like prednisone, and that I shouldn't expect any rebound type of reaction like you get when your body adjusts to being off pred. But everyone is taking a different mix of drugs and maybe you're taking something I don't that would make your doctor's recommendation for you different.

    Does anyone know if you have to be weaned off Plaquenil? I've been on it for 15 years, for Lupus? Asked by Lupie523 Updated 27 September 2018 Topics plaquenil, lupus erythematosus, insomnia, sjogren's syndrome, systemic lupus erythematosus, vision I had to stop Plaquenil after a few days. I couldn't walk, was dizzy, my speech was slurred, blurry vision, etc. but, I'm the one who usually gets side effects. I know people who Plaquenil has worked wonders. The side effects cleared up within a week. I also have Sjorgens, and my eyes were dryer on Plaquenil, but the blurry vision was the worst. If you are taking hydroxychloroquine for symptoms of rheumatoid arthritis, your symptoms should improve within 6 months. If your rheumatoid arthritis symptoms do not improve, or if they worsen, stop taking the drug and call your doctor. Once you and your doctor are sure the drug works for you.

    Again, I was surprised at how much relief I was getting and I noticed it almost immediately. The first time I did it was about 6 months after starting it because I didn't think it was doing anything for me. Turns out that the benefits come on so slowly that I didn't realize it was helping. Second time was maybe a year or so ago when I thought maybe I was getting a little better - and because of potential eye effects I thought I should try to eliminate it if possible.

    I have had to stop my plaquenil and aside from the fatigue and joint pain that I knew I would have, I also now have a sunburned look on my face when I go out in the sun and itching skin, almost like a hive type rash on my back. Hello all, I am currently new to this site and ran across the discussion about stopping Plaquenil. I have been taking Plaquenil for about 8-9 months and thought that it was not helping me because I still have a fair amount of joint pain, fatigue, muscle pain and so many other issues. Side Effects Nausea, stomach cramps, loss of appetite, diarrhea, dizziness, or headache may occur. If any of these effects persist or worsen, notify your doctor or pharmacist promptly. Remember.
