I AM HAVING A LUPUS FLARE. I AM SO FATIGUED I CAN'T DO ANYTHING, THE NAUSEA IS SO BAD, I CAN'T EAT. I'M DOWN TO 90 LBS (FOR MY HEIGHT, I SHOULD WEIGH 120 LBS). MY DR. PUT ME ON PLAQUENIL, EVEN THOUGH I WAS ADAMANT THAT I WANTED TO TAKE ATABRINE BECAUSE IT WORKED SO WELL FOR ME THE LAST TIME I HAD A FLARE. HE AT FIRST SAID THAT HE HAD NEVER EVEN HEARD OF IT BEFORE. I WAS STUNNED. I WAS EVEN MORE STUNNED WHEN MY DOCTOR, (YES, IN CASE YOU ARE WONDERING, HE IS A RHEUMATOLOGIST) NEVER EVEN TRIED TO GET IT FOR ME. HE SAID ITS NOT AVAILABLE. I KNOW THAT THAT IS NOT TRUE, I JUST DON'T KNOW HOW TO GET IT. ANYWAY, THE PLAQUENIL IS NOT WORKING, AND I AM GETTING WORSE.

Hydroxychlor Tab 400 Mg
Help. I have antiphospholipid antibody syn (aps), sjogrens, small vessell vasculitis, and multiple genetic clotting disorders. I have never felt that 200 mg twice a day of plaquenil has helped me much--been on it 8 years or so. I also take 10 mg prednisone coumadin, and lots other rx. Is it possible I need more plaquenil--like 300 or 400 mg twice a day? I'm dying to know if I could feel better. Nancy ## Have you discussed it with your doctor? From the drug information, it does appear that it can be used in dosages up to 600mgs a day, which would be evenly split at 300mgs twice a day. However, you really do need to discuss it with your doctor, because your full medical information and other medications must all be taken into account, before making any medication changes.

In fact -- I have been very careful and I have eyeglasses from the doctor that does the plaquenil test -- and my eye site is not as it was when we began. Also, I'm like you -- I have no energy, no motivativation, always sleepy -- thought it was just me -- maybe not. Let's find out -- write me back -- Thanks & God Bless -- RDP ## Wh...

Is plaquenil used for lupus
I was diagnosed with SLE and RA finally. I was given Plaquenil for the lupus symptoms and cymbalta for depression and pain. Are these good medications for SLE and RA ## Yes. I have SLE and have been prescribed Plaquenil 200mg, twice daily for the past 10 years. However my SLE began to attack my Kidneys and Lungs; therefore, I was placed on Steriods (started at 40 mg down to 7.5 mg daily) and Cellcept 2 grams daily (medication used to treat cancer) to suppress my immune system. I also take Cymbalta for depression. ## ## I also take Plaquenil twice daily for Rheumatoid Arthritis. This is an antimalarial drug that also has been found to help with RA symptoms by suppressing the immune system's response. I have my eyes checked about twice a year to ensure that this medicine has not affec...

watson 698200
oval white pill ## Found in 12 year old son's room. 2 white, almost oval tablets marked Watson 698200. Doesn't match anything in our med. cabinet. I know Watson makes opioid generics. Can you help? ## This is Hydrochloroquine 200mgs, it is a generic for Plaquenil an antimalerial agent. Next question is what your son thought it was, it is very common for these drugs to be passed off as other things such as narcotics, since the layman doesn't know how to usually identify them. ## Most common use of this is as a reumatoid arthitis modification drug. takes about 3 months to take effect. Main side effect is can damage retinal nerve if taken over a long period of time. other than that fairly safe. ## i know this isn't what this page is for.. but this pill wont get me high? or ...
