    Hydroxychloroquine for sjogren's syndrome vs another drug


    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."

    Hydroxychloroquine Plaquenil is a drug that is classified as an anti-malarial drug. Plaquenil is prescribed for the treatment or prevention of malaria. It is also prescribed for the treatment of rheumatoid arthritis, lupus, and the side effects of lupus such as hair loss, joint pain, and more. My understanding is that the rheumatologist thinks that plaquenil is synergistic with mycophenolate and the 2 have a better chance of halting the progression of the neuropathy, and the other current and possible impacts of Sjogren’s better than mycophenolate alone. Immunosuppressants leflunomide and hydroxychloroquine both have the ability to reduce B-cell activity in Sjögren’s syndrome patients. But clinical trials with these agents alone have failed to show a reduction in disease activity and improvements in other clinical parameters.

    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.
