    Can plaquenil cause dry eys


    In Sjögren’s, Plaquenil is used to treat many symptoms of Sjögren’s including fatigue, joint symptoms of arthritis and arthralgias (joint pain), dry mouth and dry eyes. Similar to its use in systemic lupus erythematosus, many clinicians feel that it is useful in reducing general Sjögren’s “disease activity.” One of the reasons that physicians feel comfortable in prescribing Plaquenil is its low risk to benefit ratio.

    Though there is no cure for Sjögren's syndrome, the symptoms may be treated by using lubricating eye ointments, drinking plenty of water, humidifying the air, and using glycerin swabs. Medications are also available to treat dry eye and dry mouth. Plaquenil, widely used to treat lupus, rheumatoid arthritis and other inflammatory and dermatologic conditions, is very effective, and “the risk of toxicity in the first five years for someone without special risk factors is very low,” Dr. Marmor said. However, risk increases with duration of use. Eye damage due to Plaquenil is not common,” he says. “Rarely will anybody who has good vision and minimal symptoms develop loss of central vision or ability to read if annual screening is done and visual are symptoms reported as soon as they occur so the medication can be stopped if toxicity occurs.

    Jun 16, 2016 The thing is I have not been diagnosed with Sjogren's yet. As I understand taking Plaquenil and seeing if it helps are a part of diagnosis. What makes me unwilling to take the risk, however small it may be, is that I only seem to have two symptoms of Sjogren's dry eyes and Raynaud's phenomenon. May 23, 2016 In summary, if you have Sjögren’s, hydroxychloroquine may be an option to help your symptoms. Because there are other more effective therapies available to treat dry eyes and dry mouth, it is typically prescribed to help musculoskeletal pain and fatigue.
