    Yes, Plaquenil can cause mood changes, irritability and psychosis and can worsen the existing psychosis. So yes, changing the drug may help. However, please do not change or stop the medication on your own. You need to consult a doctor and slowly be weaned off it and on to anew drug for your lupus. Psychotic states are mimicked by the use of many drugs including amphetamines, cannabis, lysergic acid diethylamide, psilocybin, mescaline, isoniazid, and L-dopa. A paranoid psychotic picture in a clear sensorium is characteristic of amphetamine psychosis. Please I need to find out if anyone who has taken plaquenil has experienced back and hip pain. I started in Oct of 2011 taking 200 mg of plaquenil once a day. In April of 2012 I started taking 400 mg 2 x's a day. I did start to notice that I was having pain when I tried to sleep at night. Mostly in my arms hands and ankles.
