    Plaquenil did not work for me


    You get more ACE2 receptors though if you smoke or have diabetes or if you lige a place with a lot of air pollution.https://gov/pmc/articles/PMC2911869/https://gov/pmc/articles/PMC1287568/I'm not a doctor so this is to be taken as medical advise or a reason to skip any precautions. I'm also certain the scientists will learn much more and perhaps change their views later.

    I started using plaquenil for the first few months after diagnosed with dermatomyositis. Then I went to John's Hopkins Myositis Center. They told me they do not usually start on plaquenil but skip straight to azathioprine. Did not see any improvement on plaquenil which is also their experience with most of their patients. Plaquenil didn't work for me. I take mtx as an injection because it made me feel sick for two days after I took the pills. The injection causes me to be very tired and I have gotten the runs from it. I usually take an extra folic acid pill the day I inject and it seems to ward off the runs. Vicki Haven't taken this. Just wanted to read some feedback. I was on methotrexate, but stopped, because it gave me chills, fatigue and shortness of breath, I even fainted at work. The doctor suggested Plaquenil as a possible alternative, but after reading some of the comments, I don't think so. This is really frustrating and sad.

    I only write it, because reading this made me feel less nervous and it might help others too. You should also note that a slighter risk does not equate to immunity and that other health factors may make you more or less susceptible.

    Hydroxychloroquine along with 30 mg of Prednisone worked for me within 3 months and did a great job. However I had a side reaction- hallucination, so I came off the drug. Plaquenil did not work as well for me,it took about 10 weeks before I saw some effect but again I had a reaction- my fatigue got even worse and I could not stay awake. For me it did not start so quickly. You need to build a therapeutic level for any real benefit. Sometimes that is how Sjogren's works. Symptoms seem to disappear for a few days and reappear. Plaquenil eventually helped my joint pain. The continued fatigue and other symptoms are related to my mctd so I am not the perfect judge for this. Once I was off the plaquenil I had no further similar problems. So, didn't work for me but I have cardiac sarcoidosis as well as other organ involvement. My Johns Hopkins doctor has me on cellcept still on daily prednisone but hope to wean down after a while. I hope it works for you. Blessings, Becky

    Chloroquine is the generic form of the brand-name prescription medicine Aralen, which is used to prevent and treat malaria — a mosquito-borne disease caused by a parasite — and to treat amebiasis, an infection of the intestines caused by a parasite.

The risk may also be higher with some doses of hydroxychloroquine, if you use hydroxychloroquine for longer than 5 years, or if you take certain other drugs like tamoxifen. Call your doctor right away if you have any eyesight.

    Plaquenil side effects of bipolar and depression Page 2 So glad you posted this and I now know I'm not the only one having the crazy reaction to Plaquenil. I have RA and was put on Plaquenil 1 week ago and noticed the extreme moods swings, frustration turning to extreme rage, feeling crazy, then crying over my reactions.
