    Allergy to plaquenil after being on it for years


    I have been getting these horrible rashes and they are not related to sun exposure. I am starting to wonder if they are related to Plaquenil.

    How much is chloroquine in the us Does plaquenil affect the kidneys

    Overall Plaquenil did take away the muscle and joint pain. It worked wonders for that. For that reason I am satisfied with plaquenil for what I took it for. Took about 5-6 months to see full effect. Since reducing the dose from 400mg to 200mg 4 months ago I do feel some of this pain returning You win some, you lose some! M 49 1 years 400mg day Feb 19, 2020 The adult dose of Plaquenil to suppress malaria is 400 mg on the same day each week. The pediatric weekly suppressive dosage is 5 mg/kg of body weight. The adult dose of Plaquenil to treat an acute attack of malaria is an initial dose of 800 mg followed by 400 mg in six to eight hours and 400 mg for two more days. Hydroxychloroquine Plaquenil is considered a disease-modifying anti-rheumatic drug DMARD. It can decrease the pain and swelling of arthritis. It may prevent joint damage and reduce the risk of long-term disability. Hydroxychloroquine is in a class of medications that was first used to prevent and treat malaria.

    I've always been one to go for the natural route and am starting to feel like I should just stop taking everything and see what happens - so frustrating. My doctor now wants me to start on Chloroquine instead of plaquenil.

Some people DO get an allergic rash from hydroxychloroquine = the generic form. I've read that fewer get it from Plaquenil = the name brand, so some rheumies presecribe it even though it's more expensive. Does the printout you got with your Rx mention the rash possibility? Have you spoken with your rheumie?
