    Jessie, plaquenil can take up to 6 months to take effect. I was told to not not try to discontinue any of my lupus meds while my medical condition was unstable. At the time, I had a sinus infection. Jessie, 3 years ago, my doctor discontinued my plaquenil ie. hydroxychloroquen and substituted it for an older anti-malerial drug named. Rheumatoid arthritis is a chronic disorder for which there is no known cure. Fortunately in the last few years, a shift in strategy toward the earlier institution of disease modifying drugs and the availability of new classes of medications have greatly improved the outcomes that can be expected by most patients. With Plaquenil, however, the most commonly prescribed anti-malarial, this sort of damage occurs only in 1 out of 5,000 people who take the drug for five years or more. For this reason though, it is important that you see an ophthalmologist for an exam before starting to take an anti-malarial medication for your lupus.

Plaquenil is used to treat or prevent malaria, a disease caused by parasites that enter the body through the bite of a mosquito. Malaria is common in areas such as Africa, South America, and Southern Asia. Plaquenil and Prednisone is not even in the same class of drugs. The prednisone is a steriod and the plaquenil is a anti malaria drug. The thing with plaquenil for me is that I don't notice much of anything taking it but when I go off then I flare up and then really notice it.

    Is extreme fatigue a side effect of Plaquenil? Hi! I think Plaquenil is the cause of my extreme fatigue too. I am not anemic at this time and I get exhausted just trying to get through the day. I have also been on Plaquenil about three months. All of my arthritis swelling and pain are gone, but the fatigue will not let up! Hope things change for you.
