    Joint pain after stopping plaquenil


    So far I have no more energy than when I first started and has developed neuropathy which I have just found out from Web MD that this neuropathy is one of the side effects of this med! Saying that by stopping this it would take another 6 months to build up the benefit. There are other meds that can help with what you are experiencing, and if your doctor didn't address that then I would seek out a second opinion... Please don't stop your plaquenil until you are sure it is the right thing to do and in your best interest.

    What conditions does plaquenil treat Vertigo from plaquenil Methotrexate vs plaquenil side effects long term Chloroquine used for what countries

    About a week after I stopped taking it I had a wicked flare. Fever, more neurological symptoms, totally wiped out, and horrible joint pain. It's been a little over a week since I started again and I actually managed to finally get Christmas down AND cook dinner. Wow, right? I can't say for sure it was the plaquenil, but it does make me hopeful. In Sjögren’s, Plaquenil is used to treat many symptoms of Sjögren’s including fatigue, joint symptoms of arthritis and arthralgias joint pain, dry mouth and dry eyes. Similar to its use in systemic lupus erythematosus, many clinicians feel that it is useful in reducing general Sjögren’s “disease activity.” But after doing some research, it appears that others are going thru the same thing. I will be on month 2 of plaquenil when I see the R doc and probably off the steroids by then im tapering those quite slowly and am currently on 40mg daily I have grown used to feeling great on steroids, and hope the plaquenil comes thru for me.

    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. Or maybe another doctor if you're not comfortable w/your current one.

    Feb 09, 2012 plaquenil, osteoarthritis, pain, sjogren's syndrome, systemic lupus erythematosus I have been on plaquenil for about 3 years. At one time, i tried to stop taking it due to money issues. You mentioned that you didn't have the joint issues and didn't know why you were taking Plaquenil? Well, so you DON'T have the aches later. Plaquenil slows the progression of the disease. Go ahead and call the Rhuemy now, or just wait until Monday, if you have had this for a few weeks anyway. It took me about a year before I felt any real relief from my symptoms with Plaquenil which are very similar to Lupus, TMJ, Fibromyalgia & Arthritis all rolled into one big painful mess. Who knows what I have. I had severe pain from head to toe & from my skin to my very soul including muscle & joint pain for many years.

    Humphrey visual field findings in hydroxychloroquine toxicity Although visual field defects in HCQ toxicity can be highly variable in terms of the depth of defect, all our patients showed a similar pattern on 10-2 white, with the same areas affected. However, one needs to look carefully for subtle decreases in threshold in the area at risk 2–6 degrees from center.

    Anxiety and Plaquenil Has anyone experienced mood. Anxiety and Plaquenil. I have never had anxiety in my life but learned the meaning of it with lupus. my doctor prescribed Lexapro, 10 mg a day and no more anxiety. I am now better equipped to handle the flares with a bit more acceptance. Lets face it, lupus is a life changer and we need to deal. I had problems with Plaquinal, but upon.
