    Methotrexate vs hydroxychloroquine


    The doctor said that given where I am right now (constant low level pain and light swelling of my hands and wrists but no joint damage showing up on xrays or the ultrasound), she gave me a choice of starting on either Plaquenil or Methotrexate. She went over some info on each drug and then gave me some time to think about which would be better for me. My largest concerns center around the side effects of each...

    Methotrexate is once a week usually and most of the side effects would hit the next day so some people choose to take it on a Friday or Saturday night and sleep through any potential side effects some people report that caffeine may lower the efficacy of methotrexate, though results have been inconclusive. Dec 28, 2017 They are different treatments. Plaquenil is a maintenance drug in order to help prevent organ damage. Methotrextate is usually given for RA. I was on both for 6 years. No issues except some minor stomach nausea and was given a med for that which helped. Other commonly used DMARDs for RA include hydroxychloroquine and sulfasalazine, which can be prescribed alone or with methotrexate. These drugs tend to be a little weaker, but they have fewer side.

    I also want to be sure that I'm taking a drug that will slow/stop the progression of the disease. With Plaquenil, the possibility of permanent vision damage scares me.

    Hydroxychloroquine is sometimes combined with methotrexate for additive benefits for signs and symptoms or as part of a regimen of “triple therapy” with methotrexate and sulfasalazine. Mechanism The mechanism of action of antimalarials in the treatment of patients with rheumatoid arthritis is unknown but is thought to involve changes in. We aimed to compare the efficacy of methotrexate and hydroxychloroquine on refractory lichen planopilaris. Methods In a randomized clinical trial, 29 patients were randomly allocated to receive either 15 mg methotrexate/week or 200 mg hydroxychloroquine twice a day for 6 months. I was diagnosed with RA in march and have been on increasing dose of methotrexate. Yesterday my rheumatologist started me on hydroxychloroquine as well. Is anyone else on this combination and have you had any problems with it as I know hydroxychloroquine can cause eye sight problems. Thanks
