    Effects of stopping 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.

    Has anyone had any side effects from STOPPING plaquenil? Also - does anyone have any great ways to prevent virus and illness, when weak? I seem to get cold after cold after cold this year. I had a diagnosis of seronegative RA in 2017. After two years of plaquenil, my disease is in remission and we have me reduced now to only 100mg per day. Many people using this medication do not have serious side your doctor immediately if any of these unlikely but serious side effects occur arm/leg/back pain, fast heartbeat, hair loss/color change, mental/mood changes e.g. anxiety, depression, hallucinations, ringing in the ears/hearing loss, worsening of skin conditions e.g. psoriasismedication may infrequently cause serious sometimes permanent eye problems or muscle damage, especially if you take it for a long time. Plaquenil is a 6-weeker as far as the benefits are concerned, but it would be more dangerous to stop if you spend a lot of time outside and if this were the summer. If you're gonna experiment, I went off it cold turkey as it didn't hurt to do it that way, but you better get back on before the summer or you could experience a flare-up.

    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.

    • Plaquenil Hydroxychloroquine - Side Effects, Dosage..

    HYDROXYCHLOROQUINE is used to treat rheumatoid arthritis and systemic lupus is also used to treat malaria. The lowest GoodRx price for the most common version of generic Plaquenil is around $20.41, 88% off the average retail price of $177.73. 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. 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. Also I noticed that the Plaquenil I think was making me feel different but not in a good way.

    How long did Plaquenil/Hydroxychloroquine take. My question is for those that have taken Plaquenil/Hydroxychloroquine. How long did it take for it to remove symptoms in your personal experience? I know I've read it can take up to 6 months but what I'm wondering is, do you just wake up one day and find it's kicked in 6 months down the road or more likely, it starts to work slowly over 6 months?

    What is the correct way to discontinue use of plaquenil?
