    Jul 24, 2018 The malaria medication hydroxychloroquine Plaquenil may ease the symptoms of some types of sun allergies. Therapy If you have a severe sun allergy, your doctor might suggest gradually getting your skin used to sunlight each spring. I was dx in August with Lupus and my Rheumy said she was afraid to start me on Plaquenil since I had a bad reaction to a Sulfa antibiotic I took and the same reaction when a Dr gave me Lasix. I read that the sulfa in Plaquenil is different from those in antibiotics and most people with Lupus have an allergy to Sulfa but can take Plaquenil. Hydroxychloroquine Plaquenil is considered a disease-modifying anti-rheumatic drug DMARD. It can decrease the pain and swelling of arthritis. It may prevent joint damage and reduce the risk of long-term disability. Hydroxychloroquine is in a class of medications that was first used to prevent and treat malaria.

    It was working really well and just recently my rheumy told that I was in remission. Then I had an allergic reaction to the plaquenil - a rash all over my body, neck, arms and legs. All of my symptoms of lupus and sjogrens are coming back and I am feeling worse each day. It has very few short term side effects and it does hold the inflamation. It seems very strange that you would be taking it with no problem and then all of a sudden have a reaction. I had been taking plaquenil since April for my lupus and sjogrens. Jane Hi, Are you sure that you are allergic to the Plaquenil??

Abstract. Background The American Academy of Ophthalmology recommendations on screening for chloroquine CQ and hydroxychloroquine HCQ retinopathy are revised in light of new information about the prevalence of toxicity, risk factors, fundus distribution, and effectiveness of screening tools. Is there a skin test for Plaquenil? Could a challenge to the drug be done? The package insert lists angioedema a potential risk but does not give any indication if it can be delayed weeks after start of drug. All the literature I could find was about using Plaquenil as a treatment for urticarial/angioedema rather the being the cause of angioedema.

    Chloroquine-Resistant Malaria The Journal of Infectious. Sep 15, 2001 Although the action of chloroquine is probably similar in P. vivax and P. falciparum it appears that the development of chloroquine resistance involved different molecular events in these 2 species. The P. vivax homologue of the PfCRT transporter was identified recently and was found to lack mutations that could be associated with chloroquine treatment failures in humans or monkeys 72.
