    Plaquenil reviews by patients


    At first it seemed like it helped now I feel the same as before I started taking the medicine other than the fact that none of my clothes fit and there is a lot more of me to carry around. Anyone know if I quit taking it if the weight will fall back off I started Hydroxychloroquine 2 weeks ago. One week in and I thought this may just work, except for the ‘extra itchiness’ I seemed to get every night.

    User Reviews for Plaquenil to treat Systemic Lupus Erythematosus The following information is NOT intended to endorse any particular medication. While these reviews might be helpful, they are not a substitute for the expertise, skill, knowledge and judgement of healthcare practitioners. My plaquenil post Plaquenil can make you completely blind! *Legitimate looking vitamins I take to help remediate it I took Plaquenil for over 13 years and it caused me and 6 in every 1000 patients, new research shows to have toxic maculopathy it caused. *re even if you quit taking the drug, it can continue to damage the eye until blindness occurs. Low-dose therapy is less likely to harm the retina, but if it does, early treatment may reverse the damage. Most adverse eye reactions occur in patients who take more than 400 mg of Plaquenil daily. The initial dosage range is 400 to 600 mg/day, but once the patient has a therapeutic response, the dose can be reduced.

    I was prescribed this drug to ease my ra disease, I was taking 400mg per day which was to last for 3 months then reduced to 200mg. Right before I hit the two week mark, I woke up with my heart racing and continued feeling my heart flutter all day and I just felt week and tired. After msging Rheum, decided to stop taking meds to see how I feel and continue with the AIP to handle symptoms and try to work at ‘healing from inside out! Time will tell and I’m eager to see how much the AIP is helping once odd meds.
