    Weight loss plaquenil


    Part of that is due to less exercise, part due to having no appetite thus feeling like anything I can get down is ok. Well, now I've been exercising at almost my pre-Lupus rate (ran a marathon a year before), eating a more moderate diet (clean protein, vegs & fruits), and am no longer taking that weight & bloat causing Prednisone (off Pred almost 2 yrs now). My question: Do you feel like you've gained weight on Plaquenil (ie without Prednisone)?

    I was told from the start by my rheumatologist I would have to have eye exams including visual field exams every six months due to the plaquenil therapy. But my next six month appointment is coming up, and they told me I didn't need the visual field test this time so the appointment would be shorter. After two normal visual field exams, does that mean further visual field testing need be done at less frequent intervals, despite continuing plaquenil therapy? PowerPoint.
