    PLAQUENIL is a synthetic Quinilone, belongs in the Floro Quinilone family which has a black box warning by the FDA. I did not this at the time i took it. Previously had bad tendon damage with Cipro. Plaquenil does not need to be stopped for surgery so it can be restarted after the procedure. Although in studies Celebrex does not cause increased bleeding, unilke other older NSAIDs, some surgeons still advise to stop it to be safe. In general, Celebrex can be restarted the day after the procedure once the risk of bleeding is over. Plaquenil is a 6-weeker as far as the benefits are concerned, but it would be more dangerous to stop if you spend a lot of time outside and if this were the summer. If you're gonna experiment, I went off it cold turkey as it didn't hurt to do it that way, but you better get back on before the summer or you could experience a flare-up.

    Plaquenil is also an antirheumatic medicine and is used to treat symptoms of rheumatoid arthritis and discoid or systemic lupus erythematosus. This medicine is not effective against all strains of malaria.

  4. I know Plaquenil has helped me a ton, because I tried going off of it once to see if I really needed it. The first two weeks weren't bad, as Plaquenil has a high half-life and there was still some Plaquenil in my body. After that, my Lupus got progressively worse until I gave up and re-started the Plaquenil after 6 weeks of being off it.

    Now that you're off the plaquenil, there is more fatigue and joint aches. Plaquenil is very effective for the symptoms of achiness and fatigue. However, there might be a price to pay in terms of retinal toxicity especially after taking it for as long as you have. With Plaquenil, however, the most commonly prescribed anti-malarial, this sort of damage occurs only in 1 out of 5,000 people who take the drug for five years or more. For this reason though, it is important that you see an ophthalmologist for an exam before starting to take an anti-malarial medication for your lupus. As for the vitamins, I noticed they also were really helping w my joints. I was on Plaquenil in the past for joint problems and liked it. I didn't notice any other side effects, but hearing of sight loss scares me as I am looking to go back on them. I think I will be experimenting w MSM a little more before turning to Plaquenil. Hope this is.
