You do not need to wean off it. Withdrawal syndrome is found among people who take Plaquenil, especially for people who are female, 50-59 old also take medication Lyrica, and have Fibromyalgia.

Saturday was a week since I stopped taking Plaquenil, aka Hydroxychloroquine, per my doctor's instructions, and I think I am going through some form of withdrawal. I took the drug as a treatment for sarcoidosis and one of the side effects is a reduction in white blood cells, which is what has happened to me.

    Over the years on this site we have had quite a few people post that they didn't think that the plaquenil was working so they would stop taking it. I have done a lot of research on this drug and haven't run into anybody who has complained of the withdrawal effect.

  4. Hello all, I am currently new to this site and ran across the discussion about stopping Plaquenil. I have been taking Plaquenil for about 8-9 months and thought that it was not helping me because I still have a fair amount of joint pain, fatigue, muscle pain and so many other issues.

    I stopped it during my pregnancies. There is no taper needed or withdrawal, but if it has been helping you, you may have increased symptoms by the time you go for your next appointment. Do you have a primary care doctor? If so, you would likely be able to get a prescription from that doctor for one month's supply to tide you over. You can stop both meds abruptly if that is what you want - there is no need to wean. You should talk to your doctor first though. It is likely you will experience some form of pain and weaning at least your nabumetone may help to deal with this. Welcome to Sclero Forums! It is delightful to have you join us. I think your experience with going off plaquenil is very helpful for the rest of us to know about. You can let go of being angry at yourself, if you want. You didn't know for sure, ahead of time, that your health would worsen when you went off of plaquenil, did you?
