    Not diagnosed with rd but on methotrexate and plaquenil


    There have been a number of coronavirus cases in Florida and two deaths there from the illness. Being on immunosuppressants I'm a little nervous to be travelling there.

    Chloroquine drug action What is in chloroquine Plaquenil and uveitis Plaquenil hemolytic anemia

    I was diagnosed in August 2015 and started on methotrexate immediately. I have been on it weekly ever since. So far, I have no joint damage showing up on my x-rays. I have minimal pain most days and take no other meds for RA except occasional NSAIDs. I am really glad I started methotrexate right away. I experienced mild hair loss with Methotrexate but no noticeable hair loss that I can remember when I started Plaquenil and Prednisone. I did have a thick head of hair though so I might not have noticed as much as someone with thinner hair to begin with. I switched from Prednisone & Plaquenil to Methotrexate & Plaquenil after about 1 yr. I also am on plaquenil and have been for several years. Diagnosed with systemic scleroderma in 2002. I have developed pulmonary fibrosis in the lower lobe of my left lung last year and have PFT's done every 6months.

    Am I crazy to go into an area with known cases of coronavirus? We're watching our government travel advisories and won't go if they issue anything about Florida because our travel insurance won't cover us in that case.

  7. I was diagnosed with RA a month ago and am returning to my Rheumatologist tomorrow to discuss treatment options. The doctor said that given where I am right now constant low level pain and light swelling of my hands and wrists but no joint damage showing up on xrays or the ultrasound, she gave me a choice of starting on either Plaquenil or Methotrexate.

    Just a quick question, i have been on methotrexate for 2 months increasing from 7.5 to 15 and now to 25mg.weekly now been given plaquenil 400mg daily, has anyone else been on this mixture and has it worked or how long should i wait to see if it works. i'm not expecting it to work over night but soon hopefully I was diagnosed with RA in march and have been on increasing dose of methotrexate. Yesterday my rheumatologist started me on hydroxychloroquine as well. Is anyone else on this combination and have you had any problems with it as I know hydroxychloroquine can cause eye sight problems. Thanks Taking this drug. This drug does not have a strong effect on the immune system, so vaccines recommended by other physicians are generally acceptable. Notify your eye doctor when you are on this medication so regular visual screening tests can be performed. If you are pregnant, considering becoming pregnant, or lactating,

    Plaquenil During Pregnancy. yes? no? - HELP! One thing to think about Plaquenil takes MONTHS to fully build in your body. I would assume that it also takes MONTHS to know how bad off you'd be if you went off of it. I'm bumping up this topic, hoping someone who has experience with plaq during pregnancy will see it.
