    Do you need to stop hydroxychloroquine before surgery


    So far I have no more energy than when I first started and has developed neuropathy which I have just found out from Web MD that this neuropathy is one of the side effects of this med! Saying that by stopping this it would take another 6 months to build up the benefit. There are other meds that can help with what you are experiencing, and if your doctor didn't address that then I would seek out a second opinion... Please don't stop your plaquenil until you are sure it is the right thing to do and in your best interest.

    Evidence for this comes from a randomized clinical trial in which patients with rheumatoid arthritis RA were assigned to either continue on methotrexate MTX or suspend taking it for 2 weeks before and 2 weeks after surgery. The study also contained a control of patients with RA who were not on MTX Ann. Rheum. Dis. In general, one should consider withdrawal of the medication three or four days prior to surgery. Hydroxychloroquine is a less commonly utilized disease modifying anti-rheumatic medication. It is an anti-malarial medication. There is no indication that Plaquenil requires discontinuation in the perioperative period. In Conclusion If your rheumatoid arthritis symptoms do not improve, or if they worsen, stop taking the drug and call your doctor. Once you and your doctor are sure the drug works for you, do not stop taking hydroxychloroquine without talking to your doctor. Symptoms of rheumatoid arthritis will return if you stop taking hydroxychloroquine.

    Plaquenil is a 6-weeker as far as the benefits are concerned, but it would be more dangerous to stop if you spend a lot of time outside and if this were the summer. Or maybe another doctor if you're not comfortable w/your current one.
