    If i go off plaquenil can i go back on

    It is often the first line of attack before other more aggressive therapies are added such as methotrexate or rituximab that have bigger impacts on the immune system. I had almost (but not quite) forgotten what these aches and pains feel like, but they're back…I am re-acquainting myself with those symptoms that it tames: the overall flu-like and feverish feeling -- aka malaise -- and joint pain." (Click here to read more). I had a similar experience when I stopped taking plaquenil.

    Feb 09, 2012 It may be you mentioned a side effect that you were not aware of is why he stopped this med. I understand it can take up to 6 months to start helping, & would agree without it you could have the same pain from your Lupus as before. You should pin down your doctor with a list of questions about what is going on & ask why you were taken off of it. I’ve heard that for some, you can’t go back on as it will no longer be effective once totally off. I think I’ve been lucky to be able to get back to good results within a couple of days after starting up again. I think tapering off over a month or so would be fine, but I would NOT go cold turkey on this one. Your doctor may be against it but can he/she give you an advisable weaning plan? It sounds like you're doing a good job of it yourself, but I would say go very slowly off of it. Plaquenil takes a long time to build up in your body and therefore also will take awhile to really leave your body as well.

    My joint and muscle pain went up and my energy levels went down. No, but it did alleviate some of the symptoms and improve my quality of life. It was one of those situations where I didn't realize the medication was having such an impact until I stopped it.

  6. One of the problems with Plaquenil is that because it's so slow to act, the improvements are also slow and subtle. So most people don't realize that they've improved until they STOP taking it. I've been on it twice, along with Atabrine another antimalarial. In my case, it never worked so I didn't notice a change.

    So that's the update. The lesson here is - for those who need to go off plaquenil, be careful about just going off it cold turkey. Obviously some of CAN do that, but if you don't know if you're one of them - better to be on the safe side and wean slowly. Take it from me! I am feeling much better after bumping my dose back up over the last few days. Nov 12, 2009 Plaquenil is a 6-weeker as far as the benefits are concerned, but it would be more dangerous to stop if you spend a lot of time outside and if this were the summer. If you're gonna experiment, I went off it cold turkey as it didn't hurt to do it that way, but you better get back on before the summer or you could experience a flare-up.

Red dots are still there, on my upper arms and chest. See what happens as time goes on, maybe they will go away. Girlie. Forum Moderator.

    LymeNet Flash Best treatment for Babesia? I took three rounds of the treatment for plasmodium vivax, i.e. malaria, which is 3-4 days of chloroquine followed by 2-3 weeks of primaquine 15 mg per day, not 30mg. So it may be that this treatment only works for malaria, not babesia.
