I have been taking the drug for almost two year for Sjogrens syndrome/lupus and recently I have noticed unexplainable brusing on my back and thighs
Forget bruising, BE VERY AWARE OF THE SERIOUS SIDE EFFECTS THAT THIS DRUG CAUSES ON YOUR EYESIGHT!! My mother was on this drug for 20 years and is not completely BLIND!
And the blindness is irreversible. Research how many people are going blind because of this drug!
PREVENT USING THIS DRUG IF YOU CAN AT ALL COSTS!!!
I'm 38 year old female. Diagnosed w SLE Lupus, Sarcoidosis, and RA all at age 22. I've taken Plaquenil for aprx 9 years. I have many complications w the diseases themselves but i bruise very easily. I also notice bruises that I cant explain. They all seem to be extra sore and very bright blue. I've ask my RA Dr about this but never a understandable explanation. Most of my bruising is found on my arms, hands and lower legs.
