    Hydroxychloroquine Plaquenil, a drug designed to treat malaria, is often helpful in treating Sjogren's syndrome. Drugs that suppress the immune system, such as methotrexate Trexall, also might be prescribed. 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. Once corticosteroids have been started, the patient is usually seen 1-3 months. Depending on the patient's condition, the dosage can be tapered at those visits. After 3-6 months, the dose should be tapered to physiolog- ic levels – for example, 10 mg of prednisone per day or less.
