    Plaquenil Use in Autoimmune Diseases by Dermatologists and Rheumatologists Dr. Camisa February 9, 2014 February 9, 2014 Autoimmune diseases / Lupus / Psoriasis / Treatments It may surprise you to learn that anti-malarial drugs are used by dermatologists and rheumatologists. Has anyone had experience with Plaquenil Hydroxychloroquine as treatment for psoriatic arthritis? I am new to this struggle and my MD is trying to be rather conservative because severe hypothyroidism is complicating my symptoms. But, any info I find is that this medication is sometimes used for RA and can actually make psoriasis worse. Plaquenil was actually first classified as an antimalarial drug, but it is also used to treat certain rheumatic and autoimmune conditions which are unrelated to malaria. Generally, Plaquenil is a treatment option as monotherapy used alone for mild rheumatoid arthritis or as combination therapy with other DMARDs for moderate to severe disease.

    Quitting Paxil Cold Turkey A Journey Through Hell - Mental Health Daily You “I stopped taking Paxil”. Doctor SHOULD have said “Ah, yes I see. You can’t stop SSRI’s cold turkey!” That was the one thing I didn’t see in your article. You gave good ideas, but actually weaning off helps best and I think of the SSRIs, Prozac may have the longest half life.
