    It is often the first line of attack before other more aggressive therapies are added such as methotrexate or rituximab that have bigger impacts on the immune system. I had almost (but not quite) forgotten what these aches and pains feel like, but they're back…I am re-acquainting myself with those symptoms that it tames: the overall flu-like and feverish feeling -- aka malaise -- and joint pain." (Click here to read more). I had a similar experience when I stopped taking plaquenil.

    It’s used in people with Sjogren’s syndrome, rheumatoid arthritis, and lupus to relieve joint pain, fatigue, and rashes. It may take up to 12 weeks for you to notice the effects of hydroxychloroquine. Hydroxychloroquine is safe, even for pregnant women with Sjogren’s syndrome. How long had you been taking the Plaquenil? I have been taking the generic, hydroxychloroquine, for 11 years. My weight was higher over 200 lbs. My opthamologist suggested I speak to my rheumie about halving the dosage 400 mg/day. When I spoke to my dr. he agreed right away. A little over two years ago I stopped eating meat. Just curious to know what the stats are on those of us who take Plaquenil. When I first saw the Rheumy when I got my Sjogren's diagnose, he started me on 200mg 2 x day. I found that the evening dose was fine, but the morning dose, that I would take with my usual breakfast of cereal was causing me gassiness all day.

    My joint and muscle pain went up and my energy levels went down. No, but it did alleviate some of the symptoms and improve my quality of life. It was one of those situations where I didn't realize the medication was having such an impact until I stopped it.

    Hydroxychloroquine is the most widely prescribed treatment in the U. S. to manage fatigue in Sjogren’s syndrome, but this practice is largely made based on clinical experience. Disclosures Development of the guidelines was done with support from the Sjogren’s Syndrome Foundation. So, I would recommend that anyone with Sjogren's just take plaquenil if their Rheumatologist suggests it. It usually, but not always, has few side effects, and sometimes can produce a lot of benefit. It is usually administered without that 1,000 gram lifetime cumulitive dose that I mentioned. Gingylyn September 5, 2016, am #1 I saw a rheumatologist finally today. She prescribed Plaquenil and drew 12 vials of blood to check my clotting factors and test for lupus, as well as a urine test to check my kidneys she said. My concern is if this med will cause me to gain weight.
