Who Else Is On Plaquenil?

Who Else Is On Plaquenil?

Who else is on Plaquenil? I know everyone is different just wondering what to expect. First day on today. Hoping it's better then the methotrexate.

I am on Plaquinil. I had no side effects at all while on it. It did take 6 months before I started to see benefits. I am still on Plaquinil, but they have added Xeljanz as well. Xeljanz has worked better, but has side effects I did not experience on Plaquinil. Best of luck to you!!

Was on it for quite some time but now on methotrexate and diclofenac, along with 2.5 mg of prednisone. Never had a problems with it but dr. felt I needed something stronger. So far so good and I have been about a year this way.

I was, but script ran out. Now prescribed xeljanz, waiting to see what that does.

I have only been on it for four months, and have so far seen no benefits, but I understand it can take a while to work. The side effects I have noticed are dizziness and small skin umps that itch like crazy.

I don't tolerate methotrexate that's why the switch to the plaquenil. So far I have seen no improvement other than the side effects that I had from the methotrexate are gone.
