    Has anyone had any side effects from STOPPING plaquenil? Also - does anyone have any great ways to prevent virus and illness, when weak? I seem to get cold after cold after cold this year. I had a diagnosis of seronegative RA in 2017. After two years of plaquenil, my disease is in remission and we have me reduced now to only 100mg per day. I had been taking plaquenil since April for my lupus and sjogrens. It was working really well and just recently my rheumy told that I was in remission. I felt great. Then I had an allergic reaction to the plaquenil - a rash all over my body, neck, arms and legs. I stopped taking it 1 week ago. 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. If you're gonna experiment, I went off it cold turkey as it didn't hurt to do it that way, but you better get back on before the summer or you could experience a flare-up.
