    Getting off hydroxychloroquine


    The pharmacist said there wont be any danger just stopping it. Has anyone gone off the plaquenil and what happened? I was put on Plaquenil for RA as I was being dx for lupus. My rhuemy wants me to stop every time I have an infection. Best of luck, Creekbank My mom said she read that plaquenil is mainly used for the discoid lupus and people with the joint pain. Right now my hips are the only thing that is really bothering me my knees are now starting to act up.....

    With the Plaquenil I don't think you will find much relief in such a short time on it & at half of a workable dose. I have read about people stopping P & flaring up. Those who stopped it abruptly had real problems similar to what you are experiencing. If you really need to get off it, I would taper down slowly, very slowly. May 07, 2012 Saturday was a week since I stopped taking Plaquenil, aka Hydroxychloroquine, per my doctor's instructions, and I think I am going through some form of withdrawal. I took the drug as a treatment for sarcoidosis and one of the side effects is a reduction in white blood cells, which is what has happened to me. Find patient medical information for Hydroxychloroquine Oral on WebMD including its uses, side effects and safety, interactions, pictures, warnings and user ratings. This medicine is a off.

    There is no taper needed or withdrawal, but if it has been helping you, you may have increased symptoms by the time you go for your next appointment. If so, you would likely be able to get a prescription from that doctor for one month's supply to tide you over. I have only taken it once, so I am not sure what the results will be. I stopped mine and went into a life threatening flare - I would call your PCP to get a refill You may be fine or not- depends on if your illness has been lurking in the background waiting for an opportunity to launch an attack Louters, I went to see a new rheum and he took me off the Plaquenil to see what symptoms would show. I agree with poobie and would call your pcp to get a refill if possible.

  5. BUT after being off it for a month and a half my body feels like it's falling apart. I have a lot more pain and fatigue and my eyes feel like they are on fire. I stopped because of the mistaken belief that it wasn't helping me, when in truth, it was keeping me from getting worse. Take care!

I’m getting constant tinnitus, high pitched whistles, a tic, tic sensation as well as other strange noises, my hearing feels down too but worst of all is that I feel very dizzy and lightheaded. I was on hydroxychloroquine but had to come off it like you I had terrible headaches and felt sick. I was taking it for around 6 months but. I recently decided to stop taking Plaquenil because I was having constant chest pains even more so than I usually have due to Lupus. Since I have not taken it my chest feels so much better which is odd because chest pain is not listed as a side effect. Also I noticed that the Plaquenil I think was making me feel different but not in a good way.
