    Hydroxychloroquine Plaquenil was originally used to treat malaria and is now used mostly to treat rheumatological and dermatological diseases. Its most frequent use now is for Rheumatoid Arthritis RA and Lupus and is often very effective in mitigating the joint and arthritic symptoms these diseases can cause. Hydroxychloroquine HCQ, sold under the brand name Plaquenil among others, is a medication used for the prevention and treatment of certain types of malaria. Specifically it is used for chloroquine-sensitive malaria. Other uses include treatment of rheumatoid arthritis, lupus, and porphyria cutanea tarda. It is taken by mouth. 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.

    I really havent had much luck or help with anyone Docs telling me any good answers on what plaquenil does for anything. So far I still hurt but don't have the problems with cold or heat. I have Lupus and i seem to be in less pain when taking plaquenil than without it. I love heavy tights or support hose for extra warmth on ankles and legs. I also have lupus but my rhumetologist put me on hydroxyquine (200mg) twice a day.

    Three anti-malarial drugs are prescribed for lupus symptoms. Hydroxychloroquine Plaquenil is the most commonly prescribed because it is generally believed to cause fewer side effects; chloroquine Aralen has a reputation for more serious side effects, but it may be prescribed in situations where hydroxychloroquine cannot be used. Plaquenil is a prescription medication approved by the Food and Drug Administration FDA to treat inflammation associated with lupus in people whose symptoms have not responded to drugs with lower risk for side effects. Plaquenil is also known by its drug name, Hydroxychloroquine. Plaquenil does help with some of the symptoms of Lupus, but it does take a few weeks to start helping. It's most important role is to inhibit progression of the disease -- I'm really surprised you haven't been on it ever since the Lupus was diagnosed.

    Hydroxychloroquine Side-effects, uses, time to work Over the long term hydroxychloroquine can reduce pain, swelling and joint stiffness. If you have lupus, it may also improve the rash. It may be as long as 12 weeks before you notice the benefits. Hydroxychloroquine is often taken in combination with other drugs such as methotrexate.
