    Difference between methotrexate and plaquenil


    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.

    Hydroxychloroquine Plaquenil is a drug that is classified as an anti-malarial drug. Plaquenil is prescribed for the treatment or prevention of malaria. It is also prescribed for the treatment of rheumatoid arthritis, lupus, and the side effects of lupus such as hair loss, joint pain, and more. Dec 28, 2017 They are different treatments. Plaquenil is a maintenance drug in order to help prevent organ damage. Methotrextate is usually given for RA. I was on both for 6 years. No issues except some minor stomach nausea and was given a med for that which helped. There is no difference between the antimalarial agent hydroxychloroquine and placebo related to withdrawals due to adverse events rate. Moderate evidence quality.

    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.

    The doctor then kept me on my plaquenil and added Leflunomide Arava to replace the methotrexate. My mouth sores went away and I quit having the days of sickness from the methotrexate. There may be something better out there, but for me the Arava has made a big difference. Plaquenil is best taken with a meal as otherwise it may cause nausea. methotrexate is once a week usually and most of the side effects would hit the next day so some people choose to take it on a Friday or Saturday night and sleep through any potential side effects Hello thanks for your time. I started both of these ten weeks ago, I'm on 400mg hydroxy and 25mg of methotrexate. Last week I got in such a state about having to take them and it's got to a point where I constantly feel sick because I'm so anxious of having them, so I've been taken off hydroxychloroquine for two weeks so that now I only have medication on a Monday, I thought this would help.
