    What will happen if you stop taking plaquenil


    I've been on plaquenil for 6 months for suspected Sjogren's syndrome (I don't have antibodies for Sjorgren's or Lupus but I do have Hashimoto's and have all the symptoms for Sjorgren's so the rheumatologist suggested a trial of plaquenil). Basically I've been on the drug since January and saw the rheumatologist on Wednesday to see how things are going.

  6. Jun 22, 2010 I stopped taking the Plaquenil several months ago and no longer have this reaction in the sun. If you feel okay in the sun, I would suggest slathering on the sunscreen, put on a hat and soak it in! If it makes you feel good and you are being careful, that's all that matters!
