    Hello all, I am currently new to this site and ran across the discussion about stopping Plaquenil. I have been taking Plaquenil for about 8-9 months and thought that it was not helping me because I still have a fair amount of joint pain, fatigue, muscle pain and so many other issues. I have been on the plaquenil 200 mgm for about 4 months now. I did stop it for 2 weeks early in the treatment due to having to take a coupld other drugs that seemed to give me side effects. I just quit the plaquenil to give my liver a rest at that time. Noticed nothing different. Plaquenil isn a antiparasitic drug with anti-inflammatory affect. Additional doses of 6.5 mg/kg maximum dose 400 mg should be given at the following times 6 hours after the first dose, 24 hours after the first dose, and 48 hours after the first dose. Prevention

    Over the years on this site we have had quite a few people post that they didn't think that the plaquenil was working so they would stop taking it. I have done a lot of research on this drug and haven't run into anybody who has complained of the withdrawal effect.

    Hair loss w/ plaquenil temporary adjustment or permanent? Sep 17, 2010 Hair thinning in women in my family is genetic anyway, so I was bound to have it. I've just recently grown my hair back out to below shoulder length, and now I've started taking plaquenil again and I am afraid of the hair loss. Will I have to cut my hair all off so it doesn't look so funny?
