Methotrexate and Plaquenil OK taken together?

I've just been diagnosed with undifferentiated connective tissue disease, (UCTD) which is closely related to RA, lupus and those other fun auto-immune diseases. The rheu. has prescribed methotrexate, folic acid and Plaquenil. In doing my research I've read that metho and Plaq. are contraindicated. I don't want to get on the wrong foot and start questioning my doctor's advice, but I'm a bit concerned. Is anyone else out there on this kind of therapy? Thanks for your help and information. I think these boards are going to be a life-saver for me. There's nothing like the voice of experience to help smooth out the rough edges.

I'm only on Plaquenil, but my aunt has RA and has been taking Plaquenil and Methotrexate for quite a few years.

No problem! Her RA is pretty severe. I know she's taken the Plaquenil for over 18 years, I am not sure how long she has taken the Methotrexate for. At least 5 years that I know for sure.
