    You must also make sure to taper EXACTLY as directed by your doctor as not doing so can cause serious issues. If you are having joint pain/inflammation and kidney issues then you should take the prednisone now and continue in confirming your diagnosis of Lupus. As for the plaquenil, this is an 'old school' treatment of Lupus. If you are having fatigue, joint swelling and pain while on Plaquenil hydroxychloroquine and Prednisone you may want to re-evaluate your total treatment. Vitamin c with bioflavanoids together with a high quality curcurmin and boswelia can block histamine and cytokines found elevated in rheumatoid arthritis. I have been on prednisone for 15 months and am down to 5 mg. I cannot seem to get below that dose without having a flate. My rheumatologist has started me on Plaquenil and has said this should help me get off the prednisone. He said he would rather see me on Plaquenil instead of prednisone due to less side effects of the Plaquenil.

    You have to keep track of you reactions and discuss with your doc on next visit. Prednisone is a bone killer as I’m paying the price 25 years later, but I was pretty pain free all those years! No hair loss and plaquenil has not affected my eyes other than dry eyes. Yes, if the plaquenil controls your Lupus flares, it is best to not use the prednisone. I hope you can get off of it completely, or at least take a small maintenance dose. Take it very slow, tapering off, and if you have a reaction, severe fatigue, etc, talk to your doc, about tapering down even slower. Jul 16, 2011 I was just letting you know how my experience with plaquenil went. Some folks take the generic w/ no problems. I take generic on most of my other meds w/ no problems. It might be too that you are being taken off the prednisone too fast. This can lead to a withdrawal syndrome if it isnt done very slowly.
