    What percent of people on plaquenil have eye problems


    Suddenly I'm experiencing eye problems (blilnd spots). I have stopped taking plaquenil, but now I'm being told by doctors that the damage is not necessarily reversible especially if you have taken it for a long time.

    Most people have eye problems at one time or another. Some are minor and will go away on their own, or are easy to treat at home. Others need a specialist’s care. Whether your vision isn’t. I was just talking to my rheumatologist today. She has prescribed plaquenil. She said very rare side effect is some sort of deposits on the eye. I would contact your dr to be on safe side. My dr said to have eye exam with dilation a few months after starting. Just tell eye dr you take plaquenil and she said they would know exactly what to look for. But you can’t even compare it to the only other things I have to treat lupus—prednisone, where 100 percent of people get side effects, or immunosuppressive drugs, which suppress the immune system, potentially causing infections, low blood counts, and liver toxicity.

    My mother was diagnosed with Plaquenil Toxicity in 2007 she first noticed changes in 2006, although being followed by her eye doctor they failed to notice this as Plaquenil TX until it was to late. I'm hoping to find people who have recovered from the eye damage.

    Plaquenil and Fibromyalgia - At one time I was taking plaquenil but now use methotrexate. Plaquenil is an antimalareial med. It has an anti-inflammatory effect simular to NSAiDs.helps joint pain and reduces muscle inflammation. Fibro is not an inflammatory process. While I was on it, it did nothing to help the everyday achiness of fibro. Plaquenil will also help with rashes.
