    Sorry to hear that you are having a lot of pain with your RA. I have lupus which mainly affects my joints and skin. I have been taking hydroxychloroquine which is the generic of plaquenil for the past three years. My rheumy recently added Imuran instead of methotrexate. Plaquenil hydroxychloroquine takes up to 3 months to begin working. Methotrexate and plaquenil. now been given plaquenil 400mg daily, has anyone else been on this mixture and has it worked or how long should i wait to see if it works. i am still in so much pain everyday and hoping for some relieve soon. Optimal use of disease‐modifying antirheumatic drugs DMARDs in rheumatoid arthritis is vital if progression of disease is to be reduced. Methotrexate MTX and sulfasalazine SASP are widely used inexpensive DMARDs, recently often combined despite no firm evidence of benefit from previous studies.

    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.

    Comparison of Plaquenil and methotrexate is difficult. Both drugs are very well tolerated and have different side effects, but if you have other medical problems, one drug might be better for you and you should discuss this with your rheumatologist. Adults. 200 mg 155 mg base to 400 mg 310 mg base PO per day, administered as a single dose or in 2 divided doses. Antimalarials and/or glucocorticoids are of benefit and may be used for the treatment of SLE without major organ manifestations; however, judicious use of hydroxychloroquine is recommended. I was diagnosed with RA in march and have been on increasing dose of methotrexate. Yesterday my rheumatologist started me on hydroxychloroquine as well. Is anyone else on this combination and have you had any problems with it as I know hydroxychloroquine can cause eye sight problems. Thanks
