    How to wean from plaquenil


    I don't know if anyone can help as this isn't technically lupus related. I've been on plaquenil for 6 months for suspected Sjogren's syndrome (I don't have antibodies for Sjorgren's or Lupus but I do have Hashimoto's and have all the symptoms for Sjorgren's so the rheumatologist suggested a trial of plaquenil).

    How does plaquenil affect vision Is hydroxychloroquine safe Eye screening for plaquenil

    Dr. Marmor, who chaired the Academy’s screening guidelines committee, said the goal in Plaquenil screening is to catch changes at a very early stage when there’s just a minimal amount of loss of vision. “Then, when you stop the drug, the damage won’t progress enough to cross the fovea and affect reading vision.” I was put on Plaquenil for RA as I was being dx for lupus. I am very mild. My rhuemy wants me to stop every time I have an infection. When it is gone she said I can resume at my own pace. Take into consideration I only take Plaquenil and ibuprofen 800mg. My symptoms came back after two weeks of being off it. I feel like I'm having some kind of withdrawl to the plaquenil but the consultant said just to stop taking it, that I didn't need to gradually reduce dose etc. Friday afternoon I got home from school I'm a teacher and pretty much slept from 4pm through to 7pm and then was asleep again at 10pm right through until 9am Saturday morning - I haven.

    I *think* I'm improving but it's been a gradual process and I said to him that it's quite hard to tell how much of an improvement I'm feeling. Basically I've been on the drug since January and saw the rheumatologist on Wednesday to see how things are going.

    You can stop both meds abruptly if that is what you want - there is no need to wean. You should talk to your doctor first though. It is likely you will experience some form of pain and weaning at least your nabumetone may help to deal with this. I suspect plaquenil for giving me some episodic diarrhea. I am 100 mg dose and take it with my supper. Did they happen to anyone else and did it eventually stop with the diarrhea side effect? It helps so much with the fatigue and pain. I have a sensitive stomach and perhaps I shouldn't have eaten that salad for lunch yesterday. WHEN A CHILD ISN’T READY TO WEAN. If weaning is going too quickly for the child, he’ll usually let you know by his behavior. Increased tantrums, regressive behaviors, anxiety, increase in night waking, new fear of separation, and clinginess are all possible signs that weaning is going too quickly for your child.

    Sickle Cell Disease in Children - What You Need to Know Feb 03, 2020 The sickle shape is caused by abnormal hemoglobin within the RBC. Hemoglobin carries oxygen to all tissues in your child's body. Sickle-shaped RBCs can get stuck inside blood vessels. This can stop or slow blood flow, and prevent oxygen from getting to tissues. When this happens, it is called a sickle cell crisis.
