    I have RA and am presently being treated with Prednisone5mgand Plaquenil. Wondering if it is ok to take Hep A and B vaccines while on these meds. Answer. Yes. Both vaccines are safe with your current medications. The flu shot and pneumonia vaccine are also safe. Discuss any new medications with your doctor before starting them, and always mention you're on hydroxychloroquine if you're treated by anyone other than your usual healthcare team. You can carry on taking a non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drug NSAID or painkillers, if needed, unless your doctor advises otherwise. So she is having me start sulfasalazine---- do any of you take this and even better do any of you take this along with plaquenil and/or prednisone because until I can wean myself off the awful prednisone I will be taking all three medicines.

    • Has anyone taken plaquenil to taper off prednisone..

    Has anyone's doctor suggested taking plaquenil to help taper off prednisone. My Rheum thinks that plaquenil will help me get to a lower dose of prednisone since I can't get past 7.5 mg without a flare. Hello and Welcome to ‘Ask A Doctor’ service. I have reviewed your query and here is my advice. It's not safe to take Ibuprofen while on Prednisone. Taking Ibuprofen together with Prednisone may increase the risk of side effects in the gastrointestinal tract such as inflammation, bleeding. There could be many reasons why you were put back on Prednisone. Plaquenil is a great drug I have no experience with it, but many people with lupus take it. Both pred and plaq are often prescribed together. I'd ask your rheumy about it and have them explain why they made that choice for you. Good luck! Ginny

    Chloroquine - Wikipedia Chloroquine enters the red blood cell by simple diffusion, inhibiting the parasite cell and digestive vacuole. Chloroquine then becomes protonated to CQ2+, as the digestive vacuole is known to be acidic pH 4.7; chloroquine then cannot leave by diffusion.
