    Plaquenil can cause loss of appetite and I agree that losing weight at this rate and suffering diarrhea is not healthy and might mean you become ill nourished and dehydrated.

In multivariable models, more weight loss and a greater risk of weight loss odds ratio 1.73 were evident among those receiving leflunomide compared to those receiving methotrexate.

    In rare cases, Plaquenil can cause cardiomyopathy, a chronic disease of the heart muscle. Plaquenil, widely used to treat lupus, rheumatoid arthritis and other inflammatory and dermatologic conditions, is very effective, and “the risk of toxicity in the first five years for someone without special risk factors is very low,” Dr. Marmor said. However, risk increases with duration of use.
