    Although they are uncommon, Plaquenil has side effects that may affect your eyes. Plaquenil and Your Eyes In some people, Plaquenil can cause a condition called hydroxychloroquine retinopathy, often referred to as bulls-eye maculopathy. As a precaution, people treated with Plaquenil should get a baseline eye exam before or soon after starting the drug and visit an eye doctor ophthalmologist annually. Long term plaquenil users on high doses will need to monitor eye health regularly to prevent retinal toxicity from long-term use. The vast majority of patients on Plaquenil get absolutely no eye problems and you should not be unduly worried or concerned. If you have a good response in your arthritis to the Plaquenil then the benefits of a Plaquenil almost certainly outweigh the small risks to your eyes.

Aug 23, 2008 Answered in 8 minutes by This medication infrequently causes serious eye problems or muscle damage especially if you take it for a long time. If you have sensitivity to light, vision changes, or muscle weakness, you should see immediately medical attention. Since the side effect of vision loss is possible but rare, it is important for you to tell your doctor about any vision changes that you experience. Doctors generally recommend regular eye exams while on Plaquenil, so that early changes can be caught. Once abnormalities are discovered, toxicity has already occurred.

    Plaquenil and hair loss rheumatoid I had quite a bit of hair loss for about 8 months on Plaquenil, 400 mg per day. I did have extremely thick hair almost to my waist. I ended up getting it cut several months ago to just under my shoulders. About the time I got it cut, the hair loss slowed down considerably. Maybe the weight was contributing to how much was falling out?
