    What step comes after plaquenil? Three months is a short time to be on Plaquenil, which typically takes at least 6 to have full effect. I've been on it for 6 now and feel much better than I did at 3 or even 4 or 5 months. I used Tylenol in the interim and it helped. However, we are all different and you may need something more.
