    Stopping plaquenil cold turkey


    I've been on plaquenil for 6 months for suspected Sjogren's syndrome (I don't have antibodies for Sjorgren's or Lupus but I do have Hashimoto's and have all the symptoms for Sjorgren's so the rheumatologist suggested a trial of plaquenil). Basically I've been on the drug since January and saw the rheumatologist on Wednesday to see how things are going.

    Maximum dosage of plaquenil What are the side effects from stopping taking plaquenil

    You had to stop all your meds, cold turkey. Did you go off plaquenil? Can you go off all those meds that quickly? Were you on pred, if so how many mgs? I didn't go off any meds when I started on methotrexate. I stayed on plaquenil, my NSAID, everything. What kind of lupus doctor is it? A rheumatologist? I hate to be the bearer of bad news, but after quitting methotrexate cold turkey, I went through a period of improved quality of life 2 months, then I took a sharp decline and had the worst joint swelling I've experienced to date. Everyone is different, and since you are taking Plaquenil too, it could be less severe, only time would tell. Hydroxychloroquine is a DMARD. The brand name is Plaquenil. What does Plaquenil do? Plaquenil relieves pain and swelling and prevents damage to joints. How long does Plaquenil take to work? Plaquenil works very slowly. In 1 to 3 months you should start to feel better. You may continue to get better for up to 1 year.

    I do think it's helped with fatigue and muscle pain but it's hard for me to compare to Xmas as when the improvement is so gradual I think it's really hard to notice on a gradual basis. I *think* I'm improving but it's been a gradual process and I said to him that it's quite hard to tell how much of an improvement I'm feeling.

    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. I do love a drink every now and then but will love feeling better, even if a few months from now. I was on plaquenil for about 6 months. I told my rheumy that I really didnt feel like it was helping much, so he took me off it cold turkey last monday. So this past week I have had several very bad days and a few "normal" days. Im just wondering if it is a coincedence or if stopping the plaq could make me feel worse that quickly. Any ideas? If your rheumatoid arthritis symptoms do not improve, or if they worsen, stop taking the drug and call your doctor. Once you and your doctor are sure the drug works for you, do not stop taking hydroxychloroquine without talking to your doctor. Symptoms of rheumatoid arthritis will return if you stop taking hydroxychloroquine.
