    Hydroxychloroquine is in a class of medications that was first used to prevent and treat malaria. Today, it is used to treat rheumatoid arthritis, some symptoms of lupus, childhood arthritis or juvenile idiopathic arthritis and other autoimmune diseases. It is not clear why hydroxychloroquine is effective at treating autoimmune diseases.

Your doctor will ask you about any problems with your eyesight and may suggest you have a vision test. Dooley says time of day also matters less with Plaquenil® hydroxychloroquine. But, it’s best taken with food.

    Plaquenil is a DMARD which has been prescribed for years to treat rheumatoid arthritis, lupus, juvenile rheumatoid arthritis, and other autoimmune diseases. When the first biologic DMARD received FDA-approval in 1998, and as other biologics followed in subsequent years, it appeared as though Plaquenil would become less prescribed. Plaquenil hydroxychloroquine is commonly used to help keep mild lupus-related problems, such as skin and joint disease, under control. this drug is also effective at preventing lupus flares. Of all the drugs I've had to take for lupus, plaquenil is probably the most mellow.

    Off plaquenil 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?
