    Plaquenil and Psoriatic Arthritis - Reviews I, too, have PSA and the spondylitis type. I am currently on Plaquenil for the PSA as it works for my fingers and have been on Sulfasalazine for three weeks and am up to the 2 pills twice a day for the last few days for my SI joint. I work full time and try to get up and walk around or do something physical at least every two hours or I lock up and its ridiculous.
