    Weight loss taking hydroxychloroquine


    Part of that is due to less exercise, part due to having no appetite thus feeling like anything I can get down is ok. Well, now I've been exercising at almost my pre-Lupus rate (ran a marathon a year before), eating a more moderate diet (clean protein, vegs & fruits), and am no longer taking that weight & bloat causing Prednisone (off Pred almost 2 yrs now). My question: Do you feel like you've gained weight on Plaquenil (ie without Prednisone)?

    My Lupus has been really quiet for about 2 yrs, and I'm afraid to change anything. The Plaquenil drug side effects list weight loss, but some people have reported weight gain instead. My rheumy wants me to come down and then off my Plaquenil, but I've been resisting simply because I'm afraid to.

    The Hopkins team seems to have found a workable middle ground – weight-based dosing up to a maximum of 400 mg/day, which is considered safe in a lean person of about 136 pounds. Three months after being prescribed hydroxychloroquine, however, just 56% of the patients were at a therapeutic level of 500 ng/mL or more. By the old standards, obese people, if dosed by their actual weight, could be overmedicated, Dr. Marmor said. If you’re short, the standard prescription of 200 mg of Plaquenil, twice daily, is too much, he said. The recommended dosage is no more than 6.5 mg/kg/day, using the standard known as “ideal weight,” which factors in height. Dr. For women, start with 100 pounds, and add 5 pounds for every inch over 5 feet. For men, start with 106 pounds, and add 6 pounds for every inch over 5 feet.

    Is extreme fatigue a side effect of Plaquenil? May 25, 2010 Hi! I think Plaquenil is the cause of my extreme fatigue too. I am not anemic at this time and I get exhausted just trying to get through the day. I have also been on Plaquenil about three months. All of my arthritis swelling and pain are gone, but the fatigue will not let up! Hope things change for you.
