My Optho and the research I did online tells me the retinal toxicity is very rare-- but of course that doesn't help if you are the rare one. MCTD is rare too and here we are. In summary Plaquenil isn't causing tyour new problems. It probably caused only the nausea, diarrhea, stomach cramps, and intense vertigo.

    Plaquenil and dizziness - May 12, 2012 I just saw my rheumy yesterday, and she wants me to try to increase the plaquenil from 200mg to 400mg. I took 400mg today with lunch, and I noticed I got very dizzy shortly after taking the higher dose within an hour. It was almost like the dizziness I had when I was on percocet after surgery, could only lie down and couldn't think clearly.
