    Is plaquenil safer than methotrexate


    Yesterday my rheumatologist started me on hydroxychloroquine as well. Is anyone else on this combination and have you had any problems with it as I know hydroxychloroquine can cause eye sight problems.

    Methotrexate is classified as a disease-modifying anti-rheumatic drug DMARD.   The drug decreases pain and swelling associated with rheumatoid arthritis, slows progression of the disease, and helps prevent joint damage. When considering effectiveness and safety, is methotrexate injection better than oral methotrexate? I told my doctor I wanted to research a bit before I gave an answer. Do you think I should try the Plaquenil first before starting MTX or is it fine to jump to MTX? From what I read so far, seems like methotrexate is a bigger drug with more side effects so plaquenil would be the better choice. Any information would be helpful. Methotrexate vs plaquenil side effects long term and short term The only problem is the Plaquenil causes severe headaches that interfer with my daily activities also. But the Dr suggested I try Methotrexate instead.

    Recently my eyes have felt sore and, after posting a question on this site, I am seeing my GP on Monday. Thanks Hi Catjones I have been taking this combination, started on both of them in January this year.

    Your doctor may prescribe methotrexate alone. or you may also take other drugs like aspirin, nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs, low-dose steroids, or other disease-modifying antirheumatic drugs. Methotrexate–hydroxychloroquine combination therapy may cause lower disease activity in early RA than methotrexate monotherapy. Methotrexate monotherapy as first early RA treatment seems to lead to more treatment intensification. Sorry to hear that you are having a lot of pain with your RA. I have lupus which mainly affects my joints and skin. I have been taking hydroxychloroquine which is the generic of plaquenil for the past three years. My rheumy recently added Imuran instead of methotrexate. Plaquenil hydroxychloroquine takes up to 3 months to begin working.

    PMR and bursitis - Autoimmune diseases - Inspire This too is my most painful area. I also have bursitis in my left shoulder but that is not as severe. I am undergoing PT to try and help with the issue as well. My left upper thigh is completely numb and if I am on my feet too long it does begin to burn as well. I have been recently put on Plaquenil and am also on Gabapentin and Nabumetone.
