    Plaquenil is used to treat or prevent malaria, a disease caused by parasites that enter the body through the bite of a mosquito. Malaria is common in areas such as Africa, South America, and Southern Asia.

    Find patient medical information for Plaquenil Oral on WebMD including its uses, side effects and safety, interactions, pictures, warnings and user ratings. Plaquenil can cause serious side effects when used in high doses for chronic diseases such as RA over the long term. The New Zealand Dermatological Society recommends that to decrease the risk of retina damage, no more than 200mg of Plaquenil should be taken a day, and a dose of 400mg per day should be taken no longer than a few weeks. A very serious allergic reaction to this drug is rare. However, get medical help right away if you notice any symptoms of a serious allergic reaction, including rash, itching/swelling especially of the face/tongue/throat, dizziness, trouble breathing. This is not a complete list of possible side effects.

    Plaquenil is also an antirheumatic medicine and is used to treat symptoms of rheumatoid arthritis and discoid or systemic lupus erythematosus. This medicine is not effective against all strains of malaria.

    Last Update September 23, 2018. In 203 posts found by Treato discussing Plaquenil and Kidney Disease, no patients reported Plaquenil causing Kidney Disease. The manufacturer's product labeling should always be consulted for a list of side effects most frequently appearing in patients during clinical studies. In rare cases, hydroxychloroquine can cause visual changes or loss of vision. Such vision problems are more likely to occur in individuals taking high doses for many years, individuals 60 years or older, or those with significant kidney disease. At the recommended dose, development of visual problems due to the medication is rare. Yes, plaquenil is difficult to adjust first, but after the first year of treatment and side effects, the benefits outweigh the problems. So, stick with it. In my opinion, the plaque nil is keeping the immune system regulated and the pain and other symptoms described will reduce.

    I took my 3rd dose of Plaquenil at supper tonight and 90 minutes later I was rushing to the bathroom. I weighed myself this morning and I'm 2lbs lighter than I was yesterday. If you started any other drugs, this can happen too. I get up extra eaelt, eat, take plaq and then wait for the explosive diarhea before I leave my house.
