    Does plaquenil cause you to gain weight


    I am not shocked about having it just being diagnosed with it. I have seen my rheumatologist for five years and I guess she just thought it was time.

    Plaquenil is the newest & safest in the class. The drug helps with skin rashes, hair loss, mouth ulcers, joint pain & swelling, fatigue, etc. It takes perhaps 3-4 months to build up & reach full effect. GOOD NEWS hair loss & weight gain are NOT associated with Plaquenil. Plaquenil has been the one and only drug I've taken, but aside from weight gain, I was getting migraines that made me feel like I was dying, my vision was immediately affected blurry, photosensitive, my gums were bleeding, I was dizzy all the time and always has a terrible sore throat - not to mention the nightmares from Hell every night. The plaquenil has caused a weight gain of about 20-25 pounds for me. Since I was diagnosed with MCTD a year ago, Plaquenil has been the only medication besides eye supplements, thyroid meds - been stable for years, and most recently Evoxac that I have been given.

    She tried to put me on it two years ago even before she diagnosed me because she has always suspected lupus. Anyway, I'm scared to death to take plaquenil but I know that I probably should.
