Re: question on Plaquenil

I was on Plaquenil for over 6 years and it is worth trying. I have Sjogren's secondary to RA in my eyes, mouth, skin and a bunch of other mucus membranes that get very dry. It helped the dryness and the joint pain of RA and should help you. If not, there are lots of other drugs.

Plaquenil usually causes a lot of hair loss and can hurt your vision(need a complete eye exam prior to starting it). But I'll take bald any day over pain.

Finally had to stop it when I got RA anterior uveitis of the eyes and Plaquenil made it worse. Wish I could still take it.
