    Not diagnosed with rd but on methotrexate and plaquenil


    There have been a number of coronavirus cases in Florida and two deaths there from the illness. Being on immunosuppressants I'm a little nervous to be travelling there.

    Can plaquenil cause eye problems Plaquenil and leukemia Hydroxychloroquine nutrient interactions michigan Stopping plaquenil for ra

    Description and Brand Names. Drug information provided by IBM Micromedex US Brand Name. Plaquenil; Descriptions. Hydroxychloroquine is used to treat malaria. It is also used to prevent malaria infection in areas or regions where it is known that other medicines eg, chloroquine may not work. Feb 16, 2018 I was started on Plaquenil right after my diagnosis of RA. Helped a little but not enough. Added Prednisone still not working enough. Added methotrexate pills started working better. Added Humira working a little better but still swelling in joints. Switched to Embrel had bad side effects. You just helped educate me. Thanks. I always thought that plaquenil was not a DMARD, but never bothered to look. I do know that plaquenil is generally considered the least invasive drug, generally prescribed as the first line of treatment. Methotrexate is the most commonly prescribed DMARD, but it does come with the chance of side-effects.

    Am I crazy to go into an area with known cases of coronavirus? We're watching our government travel advisories and won't go if they issue anything about Florida because our travel insurance won't cover us in that case.

    Oct 09, 2015 Hi, I have Raynaud's syndrome since 2010, and in 2014 I had a blood test with the result of positive ANA speckled and ACA, ACA-B. I still don't have thickening skin of the hands/fingers, but my doctors told me I have Limited Systemic Scleroderma, since anti centromere antibody ACA is a very specific scleroderma auto-antibody.

I have had RA for 10 years and have been on Plaquenil pretty much the whole time. Methotrexate did not work for me and made me very nauseous. I also take 5-10 mg prednisone and an injection of Humira every week. I have had no side effects from the Plaquenil. Prednisone is a mean drug however, I can tell you this as a nurse too but I have to.

    Aquarium Fish Chloroquine A "New" Drug for Treating Fish Diseases. Chloroquine remains active in aquariums for many weeks, seems to have low toxicity to fish and may be removed using activated carbon. In critical applications, treatment levels can be measured with a UV spectrophotometer, and the dose adjusted accordingly. References. Hemdal, J. F. Odum, R. A. 2011.
