Being urged to take this drug because of joint pain from Interferon following successful treatment of Hep C. Real scared to take it!! How soon can side effects appear? Are they reversible? How long must this drug be taken?
Side effects are certainly possible and you must have follow up eye exams. As to the length of time drug must be taken, best to ask the doctor, but it really is in relation to the pain. Have they tried other medicines to control the pain? To read more about Plaquenil side effects go to:
