    Can plaquenil help with back pain


    It's used to treat and prevent malaria infection, and to reduce symptoms and progression of autoimmune diseases such as lupus, rheumatoid arthritis, and others. Malaria is spread by mosquitoes, which transmit the parasites that cause the infection, usually in tropical and subtropical parts of the world.

    I agree with Mariso, I doubt the Plaquenil is causing your low back pain. It's possible it's part of the disease. You shouldn't be on a dose no lower than 200mg and probably should be on 400 mg per day. If you can, I HIGHLY suggest you order the book The Lupus Encyclopedia by Dr Donald Thompson. I've been on plaquenil for 6 months now and I still have significant joint pain! I can't say that the drug has helped at all, but it is difficult to compare todays pain with that of 6 months ago. In Sjögren’s, Plaquenil is used to treat many symptoms of Sjögren’s including fatigue, joint symptoms of arthritis and arthralgias joint pain, dry mouth and dry eyes. Similar to its use in systemic lupus erythematosus, many clinicians feel that it is useful in reducing general Sjögren’s “disease activity.”

    For example, it may be combined with an antibiotic to treat chronic Q-fever, which humans usually catch from farm animals or raw milk. Plaquenil is used to treat other types of infections too.

    Talk to your doctor about this, but my guess is that the Plaquenil is not doing anything to cause the pain, but rather that it is not doing enough to prevent it. It sounds like your RA has probably gotten a bit out of control, relative, to your current treatment, and Plaquenil is not a particularly potent drug when it comes to managing joint pain. SIDE EFFECTS. The following adverse reactions have been identified during post-approval use of PLAQUENIL or other 4-aminoqunoline compounds. Because these reactions are reported voluntarily from a population of uncertain size, it is not always possible to reliably estimate their frequency or establish a causal relationship to drug exposure. I don't want to have my joints deterioriate and not be able to do the things I love. I don't want my diseases to affect my internal organs and take my life away. Plaquenil can save and extend your life. Please consider taking your doctor's advice. I'd rather be alive, in less pain, and happy.

    My mom has been taking 30 mg of Cymbalta daily for chronic pain since Jan. She said it doesn't help and wants to stop taking it, her doctor wants her to continue using it. But I know she can work through this with her doctor. Plaquenil Warnings and Precautions Plaquenil Oral Uses, Side Effects, Interactions.

    Plaquenil Withdrawal – 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 I’m 90 years old.
