I too have been given plaquenil for my RA and I have had no issues. My rheumatologist makes me get my eyes checked every 6 months to be safe but as you have read this is a rare side affect. I like the plaquenil because it has lessened my symptoms in the morning especially. The stiffness in my hands, feet and knees does not last near as long as before. Where it used to take an hour or two to get everything to loosen up, now I'm in good shape after just about 30 minutes. I also have much fewer flare ups than in the past.

I also have a prescription for Celebrex but only use it when I have severe flare ups as I don't like the fact that NSAID's raise your risk of heart attack.

I have had very good luck with the plaquenil. Good luck!
