    When to switch from plaquenil to methotrexate


    Yesterday my rheumatologist started me on hydroxychloroquine as well. Is anyone else on this combination and have you had any problems with it as I know hydroxychloroquine can cause eye sight problems.

    I took methotrexate injections for five weeks and had horrible effects from it and my rheumy finally said oh well you're not going to be able to take this. I was wondering about switching from plaquenil to arava, but now I'm thinking about maybe asking about just adding the arava. Hydroxychloroquine brand namePlaquenil is a disease-modifying anti-rheumatic drug DMARD approved for adults with RA. It is often given in combination with methotrexate and sulfasalazine a treatment known as triple therapy, to help slow RA disease progression for patients who do not get relief from methotrexate therapy alone. 1,2 I had a biopsy and my doctor said he believes it is morphea. I am waiting on my blood test to come back and he said as soon as it does he will put me on both methotrexate and doctor is a very good derm.

    Recently my eyes have felt sore and, after posting a question on this site, I am seeing my GP on Monday. Thanks Hi Catjones I have been taking this combination, started on both of them in January this year.

    Aug 26, 2016 I went to see a new rheum and he took me off the Plaquenil to see what symptoms would show. I have not been formally diagnosed yet. It took 6 weeks to see the results. I went into a bad flare. Went back to rheum and he decided to put me on Methotrexate. I have only taken it once, so I am not sure what the results will be. I was diagnosed with RA in march and have been on increasing dose of methotrexate. Yesterday my rheumatologist started me on hydroxychloroquine as well. Is anyone else on this combination and have you had any problems with it as I know hydroxychloroquine can cause eye sight problems. Thanks Plaquenil inhibits disease progression. That means, it keeps it from getting worse and progressing faster. We generally will not be able to tell it is doing anything unless we go off it and see how bad things can get -- which of course is not a recommend act! And, Plaquenil takes 2-3 months to build up in your system.
