    Can you go off of plaquenil cold turkey


    I understand there are very significant withdrawal symptoms and I would like to stop taking Pristiq because it causes my heart to race when the time release happens. I take 50 mg per day and have done so for about 2 years.

    Hi. I've been on Plaquenil for a few years now and I am soooo glad I am. It helps a lot with the pain and inflammation of joints and muscles. I haven't had any side effects, as yet. You will need to get your eyes tested on a regular basis, I have mine done every year, but you should really do that anyway. May 07, 2012 my new rheumatologist recommended that I go off the plaquenil I’m on. I been on since jan 2012. I stopped taking about 5 days ago and since havn’t slept much and felt like I had the flu as well, but I was starting to get sick the same day I stopped anyways. I also have fibromyalgia so my pain is worse with lack of sleep. Jul 24, 2010 Unfortunately, it's not a good idea to stop methotrexate "cold turkey.". Some people experience no side effects to suddenly stopping taking this medication, but it does have the potential for creating an intense RA flare. The goal of medication is to protect your joints and other systems in the body internal organs, such as the heart.

    Once I ran out of meds on a Thursday but was going to see my pdoc on Tuesday and thought, no biggie, I can skip a few days. My withdrawal symptoms were gross over-sensitivity to light, a really bad headache, malaise, achy all over, notably decreased mood support (I’m on a cocktail, so Pristiq is just one of 5 psycho-active meds). Managed to do this to myself again by forgetting the Pristiq in my shoulder bag (man-purse) and missing 5 days. I’ve heard that for some, you can’t go back on as it will no longer be effective once totally off. I’ve been on Pristiq for 2-1/2 years and aside from sweating, I tolerate it well. ” that of course led to the realization that I’d missed 5 doses of Pristiq.

    Some people can handle a steeper glide path, says Valuck, but both approaches gradually reduce the dose in your system so that your body can adjust in baby steps. It can take more time than you think. I think tapering off over a month or so would be fine, but I would NOT go cold turkey on this one. Maybe your doc will want to switch you to another SNRI like Effexor to help during the taper off. And of course you can’t really cut the tabs in half due to the time-release coating. Did you take yourself off Plaquenil, or did your doctor tell you to go off it? And as far as the vision issue goes, toxicity causing vision loss is very rare if you are on the right dose for your height and if you get regular eye exams. And those who do get toxicity have usually been on the drug for years and years.
