... an issue, is this true? Not on predisone only plaquenil for RA. Someone out there please let me know
I take the same dose of paquenil for RA and have been on it about 1 year and don't think I have had any weight gain. I had terrible weight gain on prednisone but am down to 10mg/day so I've had less problems on this dose. My concern with the paquenil is blurred vision and change in my eye color. I see an eye doc for a follow up appointment to check on this soon. I had to have a baseline eye exam before starting paquenil to watch for thses kinds of problems. Hope this helps-Kim
Actually weight LOSS is listed as a side effect of Plaquenil. I've been through a LOT of literature on the drug's side effect's, even looked it up in the PDR and I don't recall weight gain being mentioned. Now- speaking from personal experience- I don't feel like the drug has made me gain weight. I'm on predisone (down to 5 mg a day) and my wieght goes up and down. However I was put on prednisone first so I know that made me gain. But I did NOT gain any extra weight from plaquenil.
