    Oct findings in plaquenil toxicity


    In Sjögren’s, Plaquenil is used to treat many symptoms of Sjögren’s including fatigue, joint symptoms of arthritis and arthralgias (joint pain), dry mouth and dry eyes. Similar to its use in systemic lupus erythematosus, many clinicians feel that it is useful in reducing general Sjögren’s “disease activity.” One of the reasons that physicians feel comfortable in prescribing Plaquenil is its low risk to benefit ratio.

    Does Plaquenil make you tired? DailyStrength Hi Phoebe, I have been on plaquenil for many years and have not experienced a sudden onset of fatigue after taking it.
