    I really havent had much luck or help with anyone Docs telling me any good answers on what plaquenil does for anything. So far I still hurt but don't have the problems with cold or heat.

I also have lupus but my rhumetologist put me on hydroxyquine (200mg) twice a day.

    PLAQUENIL Side Effects, Reviews by Patients - First, my mother and sister took plaquenil for lupus with good effect, so I am not just disliking it for no good reason. I also suffer from disabling bipolar disorder. For 25 years, I have gotten hypomanic during spring. Very happy, never depressed. When I started taking Plaquenil, I got a bit depressed but that's not a big deal.
