    Plaquenil is very effective for the symptoms of achiness and fatigue. However, there might be a price to pay in terms of retinal toxicity especially after taking it for as long as you have. Given that the alopecia had developed while you were on the plaquenil, it's not clear that going back on it will help that symptom much. Along with its needed effects, hydroxychloroquine the active ingredient contained in Plaquenil may cause some unwanted effects. Although not all of these side effects may occur, if they do occur they may need medical attention.

    The Risk of Retinal Toxicity with Plaquenil. Posted on Fri. can develop among patients that are taking the drug at a daily dose lower than the suggested “safe” dose and/or have been on Plaquenil for shorter than five years. Unfortunately, cessation of Plaquenil intake may not be a remedy since not infrequently, patients will develop. I agree with warmwaters- I have heard of stopping cellcept if you develop an infection because it is an immunosuppresant but I too have never heard, nor have I been told my rheumy or PCP to stop taking plaquenil when I have an infection. I have recurrent sinus infections and have also had bouts of tooth infections and UTI's and have remained on. Methotrexate decreases the activity of your body's immune system, which increases the risk of a serious bacterial infection. Some people who take methotrexate develop an infection that requires oral antibiotics; a smaller number of people will develop an infection that requires intravenous antibiotics and hospitalization.

    My new rheumy called today and said that my bloodwork was "all over the place." Also said that I have a positive rheumatoid factor, but that does not mean I necessarily have RA. You can do a drug search to get info, depending on which type you've been prescribed. I browsed news & found that tidbit came out about a week ago, on/about the 19th of July. But I read that LDL level is now (1) for patients at *high risk* of heart disease, 100 or lower, or possibly even 70 or lower, circumstances depending; (2) for patients at *moderate risk* of heart disease, 130 or lower, or possibly even 100 or lower, circustances depending; and (3) for low-risk patients, no change. All my best, Vee (edited to fix the figures I quoted, because my eyes and my brain have disconnected today... Men usually run 40 to 50 mg/dl, while women run 50 to 60. I'm awfully glad you have a doctor now who is actually treating you. My friend just started a statin, after trying unsuccessfully to bring her values down for several years via exercise and diet modifications. You could start your question list now & keep adding/editing right up until your that appt. I'm not sure why he is waiting, all the bloodwork is in. I'm glad to hear that Plaquenil lowers cholesterol - 15%-20% is terrific. As for starting the meds in Sept., I guess he didn't want to go over everything on the phone. I used to have a single article on cholesterol that I kept in my own health notebook.
