    Always make sure you tell any type doctor you are allergic to sulfa. And your Pharmacist so it is on your record but you have nothing to worry about.

    Someone who has a sulfa allergy can react to some medications that contain sulfa. Sulfonamide antibiotics that can cause a reaction. Antibiotics containing chemicals called sulfonamides can trigger a reaction if you have a sulfa allergy. These antibiotics include combination drugs I read that the sulfa in Plaquenil is different from those in antibiotics and most people with Lupus have an allergy to Sulfa but can take Plaquenil without any problems. I think I'm going to tell my Rheumy that I at least want to try Plaquenil and take the risk I only got a really red rash that looked like measles when I had the reaction. Mar 24, 2011 thanks dee. Yea, I am allergic to sulfa or I'd be on celebrex right now. I wish the plaquenil was working but it's not. I feel so bad every day. Prednisone ran my blood sugar up but I felt great on it, not that you want to take it for too long.

    • If you are allergic to sulfa drugs does this mean you can..
    • What next if plaquenil doesn't work?.
    • Can you take Hydroxychloroquine if you are allergic to sulfa..

    I just wanted to let you know that I am highly allergic to sulfa drugs and have been on plaquenil for almost 8 years with no problems at all. I did accidentally take a sulfa drug about 5 years ago and still had the horrible reaction so know I'm still allergic even while being on plaquenil. I took it when first diagnosed and turned out to have a terrible allergy-not to the sulfa, but to the quinine in the drug. The itching was unreal and took 3 weeks to get our of my system. I do take sulfasalazine-another sulfa drug that doesn't act like one. My rhuemy told me not to take any others because some regular slafa drugs can cause flares. Before you take Plaquenil When you must not take Plaquenil Do not take Plaquenil if you have ever had an allergic reaction to hydroxychloroquine, chloroquine, or related products or any of the ingredients listed under "Product Description". If you are uncertain whether you have had an allergic reaction to a related product ask your doctor or

    Taking Plaquenil for Rheumatoid Arthritis Plaquenil hydroxychloroquine is considered an older DMARD disease modifying anti-rheumatic drug. Plaquenil was actually first classified as an antimalarial drug, but it is also used to treat certain rheumatic and autoimmune conditions which are unrelated to malaria.
