| | Plaquenil side effects??
Okay, so I have been taking Plaquenil since May 1st. So that's what, 27 days? Ever since the beginning of this week, I have been up and down, mad and happy, energetic and out of it. I have been moody, evil, irritable. Then laughing, fun, and so forth. Back story: In 2008 I suffered from postpartum psychosis and panis disorder after having my son, then came the horrible depresion. I am still on meds (Prozac, Clonozapam). I have been taken off of two others some time ago by my Psych because I am improving. Now, on Plaquenil and I am going crazy. AND I AM STILL IN PAIN. I know plaquenil takes some time to kick in, so I'm okay with that. I mean I had the pain all this time, it can only get better..... SO I THOUGHT. Now I am going out of my mind? Is anyone else hearing something familiar. I take Plaq for SLE. I will STOP immediately if this is causing mental issues. I rather be in pain, then ever, ever, ever go through a mental illness again. I know I need to talk to my rheumy, but It's Sunday and Monday is Memorial Day, then she's off until mid June, so...... I either talk to one of her colleagues on Tuesday or go to me General Doc. In the meantime, I wondered if anyone else has had mental issues? I mean I can literally feel my mood changing for absolutely no reason...... I can't believe this..... (Forgot to mention I also have fibromyalgia and I am 33 year old female.
