    Sorry to hear that you are having a lot of pain with your RA. I have lupus which mainly affects my joints and skin. I have been taking hydroxychloroquine which is the generic of plaquenil for the past three years. My rheumy recently added Imuran instead of methotrexate. Plaquenil hydroxychloroquine takes up to 3 months to begin working. I was on both for 2 years without a problem, I've stopped taking plaquenil but am still on 20mg methotrexate per week for closer to 3 years now without incident. Yes it's scary to begin with but when your quality of life slowly returns it's all worthwhile. I take methotrexate injections weekly along with antibotic thereaphy of 200 mg of minocycline. Last week my doc added plaquenil to the mix. I have a pharmacist friend that says it can take up to a year to work, but once its kicks in it can be really good. I suggest you ask your rhuemie for additional help in the meantime.
