    Can you take plaquenil at night


    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. Malaria is spread by mosquitoes, which transmit the parasites that cause the infection, usually in tropical and subtropical parts of the world.

    Hi, I saw a rheumy for the first time last week, and he prescribed plaquenil, 200 mg twice a day. Didn't diagnose with Lupus yet, but said I definitely have something autoimmune going on and the plaq will help with the fatigue. He warned that it could take 2-6 months, though, which is what I've read here too. When I started Plaquinal I had stomach aches and nausea. My doctor told me to split the dose so I would take half in the morning and half at night. I take 400mg a day and take 200mg in the morning and 200mg at night. That fixed the problem. Maybe if you go back on it, ask if you can split it up. Plaquenil is an anti-malarial drug and contains hydroxychloroquine sulfate. It is used for treatment of malaria, auto-immune diseases like lupus and arthritis. The exact mechanism of action of Plaquenil is not known. Its action against the malarial parasites is similar to the compound chlorquine phosphate.

    For example, it may be combined with an antibiotic to treat chronic Q-fever, which humans usually catch from farm animals or raw milk. Plaquenil is used to treat other types of infections too.

  6. Feb 19, 2020 Avoid taking an antacid or Kaopectate kaolin-pectin within 4 hours before or after you take hydroxychloroquine. Some antacids can make it harder for your body to absorb hydroxychloroquine. What other drugs will affect hydroxychloroquine Plaquenil, Plaquenil Sulfate, Quineprox?

    If you do experience stomach troubles, play around with the time of day you take it and with what you take it with. It seems like we are all so different but thanks to someone on here that suggested I try taking it at night as they had found it worked for them, I was able to tolerate it. Best of luck! So she is having me start sulfasalazine---- do any of you take this and even better do any of you take this along with plaquenil and/or prednisone because until I can wean myself off the awful prednisone I will be taking all three medicines. Recent findings suggest that Plaquenil toxicity can develop among patients that are taking the drug at a daily dose lower than the suggested “safe” dose and/or have been on Plaquenil for shorter than five years. Unfortunately, cessation of Plaquenil intake may not be a remedy since not infrequently.
