I started 200mg/day of plaquenil on May 2th. Was told by the doctor that the med, should help me control the systemic arthrirts(Sjogren syndrome /lupus) after 4-6 months of using the med. So far I have no more energy than when I first started and has developed neuropathy which I have just found out from Web MD that this neuropathy is one of the side effects of this med! MY doctor does not want me to stop. Saying that by stopping this it would take another 6 months to build up the benefit. But so far if gave me no benefit! Please help. THanks.
