    Should you take plaquenil with steroids


    I don't get many side effects generally, but with prednisone I DO. It does help, but this can't be a long term affair. Plaquenil is a great drug (I have no experience with it, but many people with lupus take it). I'd ask your rheumy about it and have them explain why they made that choice for you. Prednisone is an intermediate acting corticosteroid-which means it has direct anti-inflamitory properties that take effect begining in a few hours. Is plaquenil another option instead of the prednisone? It is ment to get this undercontrol now and diminish your pain.

    Oct 10, 2003 I was on steroids and plaquenil for 2 years and no one ever told me about how the would contribute to my bone loss thereby causing early onset osteoporosis. I hope you are being closely watched and monitored. Plaquenil is generally well-tolerated, but side effects are possible. Common side effects linked to Plaquenil include nausea and diarrhea. Taking the medication with food eases nausea for most people taking the drug. Less common side effects include skin rashes, hair thinning, and weakness. So she is having me start sulfasalazine---- do any of you take this and even better do any of you take this along with plaquenil and/or prednisone because until I can wean myself off the awful prednisone I will be taking all three medicines.
