Question Plaquenil not working anymore. Help!!!

Hi, I have been diagnosed with Lupus and Sjogren's for over a year. For all of this time I have been taking both Planquenil and Celebrex. It took a couple of months for the Planquenil to start working and it did. I had been feeling better than I had in a long time.
Now though I am starting to feel bad again achy joints, fever, rash…. It is possible for the medicine to stop working and if so what is the next option open to me?
Thank you for your time to read and respond.
It seems the more I learn about Lupus and Sjogren’s the more confused I am getting.
Anyone that can shed some light on this is more that welcome

That can be part of the Lupus and medication problem.
Once you start taking any of the meds. you often find
it takes more and more to keep you in check. It's best
to read as much as you can about other things you can
do other than medications. Unless, you have a dangerous
organ involvement these can be helpful. Diet, Vitamins,
biofeedback, relaxation tapes , visualization and lots
of rest. The immune system can be very responsive to
our mind. Just think how easy it is to get a cold when
we are feeling down or how a death of a spouse can
break down the immune system and one dies from what
we call a broken heart.
