My DR. put me on Plaquenil 200mg 2x times aday but that gave me a realy bad sore throat! I called in and he said to only take one now but its still there,slightly! I feel very tired now and have very loose stools! I havent even been on it for a week! I have amild case of Lupus. Has anyone eles gone through this? Not sure if I want to keep taking this! HELP
When I was in the Army Nurse Corps(during Nam) many of the guys refused to take there plaquenil to prevent malaria. The reason was the diarrhea. Have you tried taking it with milk or food? I would call the dr and ask if its ok to take imodium for the diarrhea. I've seen Plaquenil help people with lupus or RA, so its worth trying to find some ways to cope with the side effects. There has to be something you can take to help you out.
