    Feb 19, 2020 Stop taking hydroxychloroquine and call your doctor at once if you have trouble focusing, if you see light streaks or flashes in your vision, or if you notice any swelling or color changes in your eyes. Call your doctor at once if you have headache with chest pain and severe dizziness, fainting, fast or pounding heartbeats; The drugs are to slow the slide even more but they never stop it and nothing can reverse it. And let me clarify the eye issue. Since you don't have a definite diagnosis yet, the chances of you becoming blind form taking Plaquenil are much smaller than the chance your disease will blind you. I’ve been on plaquenil for over 20 years and just stopped taking it. I don’t think it has ever helped. I have tested negative on my ANA tests for the last 3 Year’s. Weird because I still have all the pain, plus terrible neuropathy due to autoimmune issues.

    For example, it may be combined with an antibiotic to treat chronic Q-fever, which humans usually catch from farm animals or raw milk. Plaquenil is used to treat other types of infections too.

    Had to stop taking Plaquenil. I recently decided to stop taking Plaquenil because I was having constant chest pains even more so than I usually have due to Lupus. Since I have not taken it my chest feels so much better which is odd because chest pain is not listed as a side effect. Plaquenil is one of those meds you can just stop. My rheumy told me to take a months rest from it once. I asked him about 'tapering' and he said "No - just stop it - and resume after a month." I did - with no ill effects.

    Ideal time for taking Plaquenil and side effects? Lupus. Apr 12, 2011 I think it is most common to take it as Cally mentioned.200 mg 2x/day with breakfast and dinner or a snack. I actually take all 400 mg in the morning after eating breakfast because after my stomach adjusted, I have tolerated the Plaquenil very well.
