    Do you have to be weaned off of 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.

    Weaning failure is reported only by a few people who take Plaquenil. We study 48,911 people who have side effects while taking Plaquenil from Food and Drug Administration FDA. Among them, 1 has Weaning failure. Find out below who they are, when they have Weaning failure and more. eHealthMe has been monitoring drugs since 2008. What to do if you forget to take your Plaquenil. If you miss a dose of Plaquenil, do not make it up or double your next dose. Wait until the next scheduled time, and take your usual dose. What do you do if Plaquenil does not work? After several months your doctor will check your joints for swelling and see how you feel. If you still have pain. Yes, if the plaquenil controls your Lupus flares, it is best to not use the prednisone. I hope you can get off of it completely, or at least take a small maintenance dose. Take it very slow, tapering off, and if you have a reaction, severe fatigue, etc, talk to your doc, about tapering down even slower.

    I do think it's helped with fatigue and muscle pain but it's hard for me to compare to Xmas as when the improvement is so gradual I think it's really hard to notice on a gradual basis. I *think* I'm improving but it's been a gradual process and I said to him that it's quite hard to tell how much of an improvement I'm feeling.

  5. For other types of immunosuppressants, it is safe to stop abruptly if that is what the patient and clinician have decided together. However, more often than not they are weaned if they have helped and stopped abruptly if they weren't helping at all or were associated with side effects.

    If you really need to get off it, I would taper down slowly, very slowly. There is a similar posting on Healthunlocked, "Why oh why did u stop taking plaquenil." You may want to check it out. I do go for intense eye examinations every 6 months to see if there is a difference in my eyesight from my base examine. I do have SJS also. Does anyone know if you have to be weaned off Plaquenil? I've been on it for 15 years, for Lupus?

    Stopping Plaquenil - General Discussion - Life With Lupus Aug 26, 2016 Plaquenil damps down the reactiveness of the receptors that send out your “fighters”, which in us is overactive. Rather than strangling the life out of your immune system like steroid meds do, it attenuates the function to closer to normal.
