  1. Lose weight after plaquenil


    I am currently taking 200mg one time a day and my appetite has seriously decreased in the last two weeks. Just curious if anyone else had this as a side effect. Yes, Plaquenil causes both weight loss and loss of appetite. Hence, if the loss of appetite and weight loss started after you started on this drug, then yes, it could be due to Plaquenil. I was not losing weight or have a lack of appetite prior to Plaquenil so it must be the medicine. I personally had terrible nausea for almost 2 years when I was put on plaquinel, the nausea was the first symptom to leave....causing me to gain weight. I just find Im not as hungry as I was before, or that my appetite has changed.

A risk factor for Plaquenil hydroxychloroquine retinotoxicity is a daily dose that exceeds 5.0 mg of drug per kg of body weight. The tool on the right simply calculates this threshold based on a ppatient’s real body weight. It’s important to understand that the daily dose is only one risk factor for plaquenil retinotoxicity. Plaquenil caused some weight loss for me when I was on a higher dose. Now that I am on 200 mg. per day, I don't notice that anymore. Prednisone, on the other hand, has caused both a gain/loss, depending on the dosage. I noticed a six pound gain with Benlysta happened pretty quickly. That might change now that I am off the Benlysta.

    In this case, the cause of loss f appetite and weight loss has to be found. I was just curious if the medication was what caused my appetite to change or what. However, if you had loss of appetite and weight loss before your started this drug, then the drug can aggravate the process. At my last visit my Dr asked me if it had deminished my appetite so she is aware of it and the amount of weight I lost and is not concerned at this moment. I know diarhea is a common side affect of plaquinel. It wasn't that I was eating a lot, it was just that I was actually eating. I was on Prednisone for two months prior to Plaquenil and gained 18 lbs, so I needed to lose the weight anyway.
