    Reasons to take plaquenil


    Hi Dr V, I am at a crossroad of considering to go back on Plaquenil . A year ago I proposed to go off Plaquenil after being on it for 22 years.

    Should i take plaquenil in the morning or night Hydroxychloroquine drug class

    I actually take all 400 mg in the morning after eating breakfast because after my stomach adjusted, I have tolerated the Plaquenil very well. My rheumy doesn't think there's a problem with taking it all at once as long as I'm tolerating it since there is such a long half-life, it shouldn't affect the drug itself. What happens if I miss a dose Plaquenil, Plaquenil Sulfate, Quineprox? Take the missed dose as soon as you remember. Skip the missed dose if it is almost time for your next scheduled dose. Do not take extra medicine to make up the missed dose. What happens if I overdose Plaquenil, Plaquenil Sulfate, Quineprox? WebMD provides information about which foods to avoid while taking Plaquenil Oral.

    If I had joint or muscle aches, I took care of it by resting, Aleve and ice. At my recent eye exam the doctor mentioned I had reached the plaquenil toxicity level and that my retina cells could die (which do not regenerate! My proposal was based on the fact that I had not had any major inflamation that completely shut me down or keep me from being active.

  2. Long term use of plaquenil
  3. Hi, I saw a rheumy for the first time last week, and he prescribed plaquenil, 200 mg twice a day. Didn't diagnose with Lupus yet, but said I definitely have something autoimmune going on and the plaq will help with the fatigue. He warned that it could take 2-6 months, though, which is what I've read here too.

    There are guidelines on the amount of Plaquenil a person should be able to take safely in a lifetime, and Katz encourages those taking the medication to discuss this with their ophthalmologists. “I think there are some people, like Ann, whose bodies, for whatever reason, don’t metabolize drugs as well,” he says. One of the reasons that physicians feel comfortable in prescribing Plaquenil is its low risk to benefit ratio. This means that the side effects of Plaquenil are mild and infrequent compared with its potential benefits. As with any medication, allergic reactions including skin rashes and non-allergic reactions can occur. Ophthalmologists also do themselves a disservice by not knowing the guidelines. “One of the top five reasons ophthalmologists go to court is from an adverse drug reaction,” Dr. Fraunfelder said. “If the Academy is taking a position on Plaquenil, then ophthalmologists are held to that standard. We’d better be sure we’re aware of it.”
