Anyone Have Experience With Plaquenil? Does Weather Affect Ra?

Anyone Have Experience With Plaquenil? Does Weather Affect Ra?

Hi all,

I have been handling my RA holistically as I am only 28 and was afraid of pharmaceutical. My rheumatologist and functional medicine doctor both prescribed me plaquenil. Has anyone had expirenced with this drug? Also has anyone expirence moving to a different climate and finding there ra is better? I live in PA and am in a flare and don’t know if it’s from the weather and if moving would benefit me. Thank you!

I can tell the weather better than the weather man from my RA. 😉 When a major storm comes I flare up.

Thank you for the advice and kind words. Do you mind me asking what you do for your RA?

I have taken Plaquenil for many years. It has been very effective and no apparent side effects. Rarely it can cause retina damage. Get your eyes checked annually;

I've been taking Plaquenil for a couple of months, and I feel great! No side effects, and the constant fatigue and fevers are 90% gone. I can make a fist for the first time in years. I live in Dallas so I'm not sure about the weather. Diet (low sugar, low carb, low dairy) definitely helps. Good luck!
