    What is the half life of plaquenil


    Hi Dr V, I am at a crossroad of considering to go back on Plaquenil . A year ago I proposed to go off Plaquenil after being on it for 22 years.

    The one thing that concerns me about the Plaquenil is the half life is about 50 days. So, after even just a couple weeks on it.would take you many months for it to leave your system. Also, you should get a baseline eye test before or shortly after starting the Plaquenil. And, then yearly exams after that to check for Retinopathy. Hydroxychloroquine Plaquenil is considered a disease-modifying anti-rheumatic drug DMARD. It can decrease the pain and swelling of arthritis. It may prevent joint damage and reduce the risk of long-term disability. Hydroxychloroquine is in a class of medications that was first used to prevent and treat malaria. Plaquenil is also indicated for the treatment of chronic discoid lupus erythematosus and systemic lupus erythematosus in adults, and for the treatment of acute and chronic rheumatoid arthritis in adults. • Postmarketing cases of life-threatening and fatal cardiomyopathy have been reported with use of Plaquenil and chloroquine.

    If I had joint or muscle aches, I took care of it by resting, Aleve and ice. At my recent eye exam the doctor mentioned I had reached the plaquenil toxicity level and that my retina cells could die (which do not regenerate! My proposal was based on the fact that I had not had any major inflamation that completely shut me down or keep me from being active.
