    Stopping plaquenil before pregnancy


    So far I have no more energy than when I first started and has developed neuropathy which I have just found out from Web MD that this neuropathy is one of the side effects of this med! Saying that by stopping this it would take another 6 months to build up the benefit. There are other meds that can help with what you are experiencing, and if your doctor didn't address that then I would seek out a second opinion... Please don't stop your plaquenil until you are sure it is the right thing to do and in your best interest.

    Hydroxychloroquine 200 mg reviews Hydroxychloroquine g6pd Prednisone and plaquenil pregnancy

    Hydroxychloroquine. Hydroxychloroquine is frequently used in RA as part of triple therapy in conjunction with methotrexate and sulfasalazine Singh et al. 2012. Much of the data regarding the safety of hydroxychloroquine in pregnancy comes from its use for malaria and connective tissue diseases, particularly systemic lupus erythematosus SLE. HOWEVER, that being said, RE has given me the option to take Plaquenil due to the overall circumstances of the previous pregnancy and working to keep us from having a repeat loss. I was wondering if anyone has taken Plaquenil, or known anyone who has. Corticosteroids such as prednisone are generally considered safe for use during pregnancy because they do not reach the fetus in an active form.2 Cytotoxic medications such as methotrexate are stopped during pregnancy. They should be discontinued several months before conception.

    Plaquenil is a 6-weeker as far as the benefits are concerned, but it would be more dangerous to stop if you spend a lot of time outside and if this were the summer. Or maybe another doctor if you're not comfortable w/your current one.

    Plaquenil is the brand name for the prescription drug hydroxychloroquine. It's used to treat and prevent malaria infection, and to reduce symptoms and progression of autoimmune diseases such as lupus, rheumatoid arthritis, and others. Looking for some answers about taking plaquenil during pregnancy. I don’t have lupus but have been on plaquenil to manage muscle/joint pain and fatigue related to having Ehlers Danlos Syndrome. My Rheumatologist knows that my husband and I are trying to conceive and has told me not to worry about taking plaquenil during pregnancy. Nov 12, 2009 Plaquenil is a 6-weeker as far as the benefits are concerned, but it would be more dangerous to stop if you spend a lot of time outside and if this were the summer. If you're gonna experiment, I went off it cold turkey as it didn't hurt to do it that way, but you better get back on before the summer or you could experience a flare-up.
