[QUOTE=gramsto3;3666114]I was just diagnosed with osteoarthritis and fibromyalgia. I take Loritab elixor 1.5 mg every 3-4 hours for pain, Cymbalta 60 mg 1 x a day and Plaquenil 200 mg 2 x a day. I also take Lunesta for sleep and Requip for restless leg, good multivitamine and two calcium a day. I have only been on the Cymbalta and Plaquenil for a little over a week so don't notice much besides a really bad taste in my mouth and a little less pain in the joints. Hopefully these will work for me. Anyone have any problems with this combination?
Hey, I know that this is an old post, so Im taking a shot in the dark here...but can you tell me how the Plaquenil did for you? My rheumatologist put me on that and then shortly changed me over to Lyrica, so I cant say if it would have helped me or not.... I was just curious how it worked for your pain/symtoms since you posted this some time ago.
An interesting fact/warning that I learned about Plaquenil since then was the fact that in many third world countries, they use this in high doses for Malaria....the only problem is that in higher doses, it causes irreversible blindness...Not trying to scare you, since it is dose related and length of treatment time related(over two years). But I did wonder how it worked for you. And I hope you have gotten better since you posted.
