    Plaquenil Withdrawal ā€“ Life As An Anomaly Been on Plaquenil only for ten years for sarcoidosis. Once in awhile I also had to have a burst of prednisone. I have been weaning off since my sarcoidosis has been stable for eight years. I went from 400 mg. Daily to 200 daily to 200 every other day over the course of six months. I stopped it about 10 days ago and I feel like Iā€™m 90 years old.

    Is taking Zoloft every other day instead of daily a bad idea.
