    Plaquenil dosage for sjogrens


    It is often the first line of attack before other more aggressive therapies are added such as methotrexate or rituximab that have bigger impacts on the immune system. I had almost (but not quite) forgotten what these aches and pains feel like, but they're back…I am re-acquainting myself with those symptoms that it tames: the overall flu-like and feverish feeling -- aka malaise -- and joint pain." (Click here to read more). I had a similar experience when I stopped taking plaquenil.

    Hydroxychloroquine Plaquenil is a drug that is classified as an anti-malarial drug. Plaquenil is prescribed for the treatment or prevention of malaria. It is also prescribed for the treatment of rheumatoid arthritis, lupus, and the side effects of lupus such as hair loss, joint pain, and more. Just curious to know what the stats are on those of us who take Plaquenil. When I first saw the Rheumy when I got my Sjogren's diagnose, he started me on 200mg 2 x day. I found that the evening dose was fine, but the morning dose, that I would take with my usual breakfast of cereal was causing me gassiness all day. Originally, hydroxychloroquine was used to prevent and treat malaria and was considered very effective. Now it is generally used for rheumatoid arthritis, but it has also been shown to work well for juvenile arthritis, some lupus symptoms, and other types of autoimmune conditions.

    My joint and muscle pain went up and my energy levels went down. No, but it did alleviate some of the symptoms and improve my quality of life. It was one of those situations where I didn't realize the medication was having such an impact until I stopped it.

    Generally, hydroxychloroquine is given in 200 mg or 400 mg doses, once per day. Higher doses can sometimes be used, but only in adults and not for all cases. Some people tolerate this medication much better than other people, so it is important that individuals who are considering taking hydroxychloroquine talk with their doctor about the lowest necessary dose to reduce or eliminate their symptoms. The first dose of Plaquenil is usually taken one to two weeks before traveling to an area where malaria is prevalent. Doses are then continued for four weeks after exposure. Higher dosages 5mg/kg daily lead to higher risk levels. For a 60kg person ~132 lbs, 5mg/kg means 300mg daily. This site has a useful calculator to find your safe dose.
