    Has anyone here needed to stop taking Plaquenil due to the side effects? I've been on it only 2.5 months, and my vision is so blurry that I cannot even drive.

Nov 12, 2009 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.

Aug 26, 2016 I was put on Plaquenil for RA as I was being dx for lupus. I am very mild. My rhuemy wants me to stop every time I have an infection. When it is gone she said I can resume at my own pace. Take into consideration I only take Plaquenil and ibuprofen 800mg. My symptoms came back after two weeks of being off it.

    11 months later went back on Hydroxychloriquine and all my symptoms disappeared as the meds took effect. I was fortunate in that they caught the vision loss early so it improved after a year off of the medicine. I discontinued Hydroxychloriquine seven years and had severe problems with inflammation within 2weeks all over my body especially the pancreas.

    If you don't have to, don't stop your plaquenil. I stopped taking the plaquenil the beginning of December. It doesn't agree with my stomach I take it with meals too. And since I hadn't had a miraculous recovery the 6 months I'd been on it, I didn't think there was any harm in stopping it.

    Plaqunil rash - I am interested to see if anyone here has gotten a rash from Plaquenil after being on it for several months. I have been getting these horrible rashes and they are not related to sun exposure. I am starting to wonder if they are related to Plaquenil. My doctor now wants me to start on Chloroquine instead of plaquenil.
