Hi, the side effects of plaquinel or any drug for that matter, really depends on the individual person. Some tolerate drugs better than others. I had really bad disfiguring lesions all over my body and the plaquinel cleared it up really fast and I haven't been on it in years now. I have the occasional flare up but nothing like I had then. Vision problems are monitored by a good eye doctor, plus you need to have your hemoglobin and hematocrit checked frequently to avoid problems. It is a good drug. All drugs have potential side effects and your doctor must decide if the good will out weigh the bad. Another words will it benefit you more than hurt you? Take care and I wish you well.
