    Stopping plaquenil before pregnancy


    So far I have no more energy than when I first started and has developed neuropathy which I have just found out from Web MD that this neuropathy is one of the side effects of this med! Saying that by stopping this it would take another 6 months to build up the benefit. There are other meds that can help with what you are experiencing, and if your doctor didn't address that then I would seek out a second opinion... Please don't stop your plaquenil until you are sure it is the right thing to do and in your best interest.

Much of the data regarding the safety of hydroxychloroquine in pregnancy comes from its use for malaria and connective tissue diseases, particularly systemic lupus erythematosus SLE. Some drugs need to be stopped months before trying to become pregnant. Be sure to speak with you physician well in advance if you intend to become pregnant. Hydroxychloroquine is one medication that could and should be continued if taken prior to pregnancy as it has been shown to contribute to better pregnancy outcomes for women with SLE.

    Plaquenil is a 6-weeker as far as the benefits are concerned, but it would be more dangerous to stop if you spend a lot of time outside and if this were the summer. Or maybe another doctor if you're not comfortable w/your current one.
