    Plaquenil is most known for its original purpose treating and preventing malaria. Malaria is a disease caused by parasites that can enter the body through a mosquito bite. The essential ingredient, known as quinine, is derived from the bark of the cinchona plant. Hydroxychloroquine HCQ, sold under the brand name Plaquenil among others, is a medication used for the prevention and treatment of certain types of malaria. Specifically it is used for chloroquine-sensitive malaria. Other uses include treatment of rheumatoid arthritis, lupus, and porphyria cutanea tarda. It is taken by mouth. The incidence of new-onset or flaring psoriasis associated with Plaquenil varies from 0-100% depending on which case series report you read! Allergic and psoriasis-like rashes tend to develop within the first few weeks or months of starting Plaquenil. If Plaquenil helps a serious chronic disease such as lupus, it may be taken for years.

    I really havent had much luck or help with anyone Docs telling me any good answers on what plaquenil does for anything. So far I still hurt but don't have the problems with cold or heat. I have Lupus and i seem to be in less pain when taking plaquenil than without it. I love heavy tights or support hose for extra warmth on ankles and legs. I also have lupus but my rhumetologist put me on hydroxyquine (200mg) twice a day.
