    Can hydroxychloroquine cause weight loss


    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)?

    Lynwood, I can't answer your question about weight gain or loss on plaquenil but I did go off plaquenil a few months ago and haven't been the same since. I regret the decision which had I made because I'd felt pretty well for quite some time and was doing my best to slowly get off as many meds as possible. Plaquenil is also used to treat symptoms of rheumatoid arthritis and discoid or systemic lupus erythematosus. Plaquenil is available in generic form. What Are Side Effects of Plaquenil? Common side effects of Plaquenil include. nausea, vomiting, stomach pain or cramps, loss of appetite, weight loss, diarrhea, dizziness, spinning sensation.

It is also prescribed for the treatment of rheumatoid arthritis, lupus, and the side effects of lupus such as hair loss, joint pain, and more.

    My Lupus has been really quiet for about 2 yrs, and I'm afraid to change anything. The Plaquenil drug side effects list weight loss, but some people have reported weight gain instead. My rheumy wants me to come down and then off my Plaquenil, but I've been resisting simply because I'm afraid to.

  3. I've been taking hydroxychloroquine since last Autumn - dose increased to 400 mg per day in April. I think it helps me, but it can take 6 months to kick in. Still have to be really careful not to get over-tired. Can give you wind and stomach bloating. Definitely worth trying as baseline medication, as other drugs have a lot more side-effects.
