    Hydroxychloroquine and prednisone in pregnancy


    My rheumie says that although it has been proven safe, once he finds out that I'm pregnant he's going to take me off of it. Corticosteroids (such as prednisone) are generally considered safe for use during pregnancy because they do not reach the fetus in an active form.2 Cytotoxic medications such as methotrexate are stopped during pregnancy. Also one thing you have to remember is Plaquenil takes so long to enter your body to help symptoms that it will pry take just as long to leave your system so either way your body is still going to have it in it's system why go off of it throw your body off course then try to take it again, it's like starting from fresh to get your symptoms under control. Andrea I just copied this from ***** Immunosuppressant medications, which may be prescribed for severe lupus, can cause birth defects.

Preterm birth in lupus is usually not due to antiphospholipid antibodies, but due to pre-eclampsia and premature rupture of membranes. Risk factors for preterm birth in general include active lupus, high dose prednisone, and renal disease. Maternal hypertension in the second trimester is a good predictor.

    I have never taken plaquenil as I have a seizure disorder as well, however, I do know that my Rheumy told me that the only safe drug to take during pregnancy is prednisone. Most certainly I wouldn't be on it if I were to have a child. Thankfully some have had successful births on prednisone but that is a strong medication just like pain medication it can harm a baby..
