| | Anyone else had GI upset with NSAIDs but, has been able to tolerate Plaquenil?
I have often visited this message board to read the posts but I had never registered, until today. The posts I have read have helped me to know what others with the same condition were going through. I appreciate everyone sharing their stories. I have been diagnosed with Primary Sjogren’s Syndrome, after ruling out Lupus. I have joint pain, fatigue, and the typical dryness; along with many other symptoms. I was also diagnosed with Fibromyalgia. I recently changed Rheumatologist after many years with a Rheumy whom I just loved but who was not covered by my insurance I finally got a Kaiser Rheumy, he came highly recommended. He would like me to try Plaquenil, which is what brought me back to this message board. As usual I have found some who have had success and some with not such good results. I have decided to give it a shot, I have once again had GI upset with the latest NSAID, I have run out of options and Plaquenil seems like the lesser of two evils. His other suggestion was Methotrexate, I’m not ready to go there. My biggest worry is that all the common side effects are what I usually have trouble with on NSAIDs. Anyone else had GI upset with NSAIDs but, has been able to tolerate Plaquenil?
