I've been taking Plaquenil along with Humira and since the COVID19 outbreak the plaquenil prescription I am taking is from a different manufacture. Now I am itching, get hot more and get rashes on and off and my stomach as been upset on and off. I am wondering if anyone else has had this problem? I may have to call my RA doctor to see if anyone else has had this issue. Thank for listening. Hugs.
When I started plaquenil I was severely nauseated, constipated, barely able to eat for a year. Then I guess my body adapted and I am rarely nauseous and can eat. Something to talk with your doctor about. I also spoke with my primary doctor and rheumatologist.
I was on Plaquenil...generic brand...and it was helping..but had fast heart rate! That was scary. I am taking Symponi Injection and they seem to work along with low dose steroid..which I hope to stop. The one thing I do notice is really dry skin..especially my hands!
Years ago when I was trying various NSAIDS, when I was on Plaquenil, I got a rash up the back of my legs after 2 weeks with itching. I tried something else.
Is there anything new in your job that may make you itch? I just thought of that. I got a office manager job straight out of college and when I started work I was so sick with a migraine and nausea, I had to go home at noon the first day. I was working in a photography studio. The next day I was fine until an hour after I got to work. Bingo, the migraine came right back. The smell of the processing chemical was so bad and I guess I was allergic to it. I was so excited about that job and had to quit. Just a thought. It can take a simple thing to make you have an allergy.🤗❤️
