    Plaquenil for lyme arthritis


    Although I cant remember if it was referenced here as a treatment. /gov/pubmed/15617845 "Minocycline, tinidazole and hydroxychloroquine are reportedly capable of destroying both the spirochaetal and cystic L-form of B. It's a very common drug used for those with rheumatoid arthritis people take it for many years. Something is messing with my eyes, no doubt about it. Minocycline treatment started combined with hydroxychloroquine sulfate and the patient discharged with overall improvement." I haven't but it's often prescribed - AKA Plaquenil. It freaks me out because of it's crazy long half -life - 32-50 DAYS (not hours) So, if you want to come off of it...you're waiting a long time for it to clear out of your system.

    G6pd chloroquine Autoimmune plaquenil

    Plaquenil is the brand name for the prescription drug hydroxychloroquine. It's used to treat and prevent malaria infection, and to reduce symptoms and progression of autoimmune diseases such as lupus, rheumatoid arthritis, and others. Uses of the medication include the treatment of rheumatoid arthritis and lupus. The prescription drug can also be used to treat and prevent certain types of malaria in adults and children. Healthcare providers may occasionally recommend off-label Plaquenil uses as well, such as for treating scleroderma, Lyme disease, or Sjogren's syndrome. In PLEASE, patients received open-label ceftriaxone for 2 weeks and were then randomized to a 12-week oral regimen of doxycycline n = 86, clarithromycin combined with hydroxychloroquine n = 96.

    Ya rhuemeys love it because of it immunosuppressive qualitys ..mess up the eyes ...however some llmd say it inhibits the efflux pump of bugs to make it more succeptable to others abx ..what girlie said ..is 96 hr so a few day n ok but ya a month to clear the system?! Yes its used to reduce inflammation and make other abx's more effective. It can also mess with your eyes so you need to get them checked but I haven't run into anyone that's actually had eye problems from it. Thought that might be the case - hadn't seen it in any of his protocols that I find online. I recommend if you're going on Plaquenil to have a baseline test done. It can also mess with your eyes so you need to get them checked but I haven't run into anyone that's actually had eye problems from it. It's a very common drug used for those with rheumatoid arthritis people take it for many years. I think it tests our Peripheral vision - and you may not notice a change so don't wait for that to happen I failed Visual Contrast Sensitivity as can be expected after mold exposure.

    I've been diagnosed with Lyme disease, Q fever, rickettsia and I've been battling this for years. I have unbearable joint pain and syncopal episodes. I am a nurse. I have to say that the best I feel is on Plaquenil and doxycycline, with steroids occasionally. I have a flare. I was just prescribed plaquenil to treat the cyst form of lyme. The usage of the drug says it is to suppress the immune system in the treatment of lupus. Why would you want to do this if you have lyme. I thought steriods and drugs that suppress the immune system make treatment much slower. I am reluctant to take it. The symptoms for prolonged treatment of lupus or arthritis include the acute symptoms, plus altered eye pigmentation, acne, anemia, bleaching of hair, blisters in mouth and eyes, blood disorders, convulsions, significant vision difficulties, diminished reflexes, emotional changes, excessive coloring of the skin, hearing loss, hives, itching, liver problems or failure, loss of hair, muscle paralysis, weakness or atrophy, nightmares, psoriasis, reading difficulties, tinnitus, skin inflammation.
