    Eye things behind eye from taking plaquenil


    Suddenly I'm experiencing eye problems (blilnd spots). I have stopped taking plaquenil, but now I'm being told by doctors that the damage is not necessarily reversible especially if you have taken it for a long time.

    The vast majority of patients on Plaquenil get absolutely no eye problems and you should not be unduly worried or concerned. If you have a good response in your arthritis to the Plaquenil then the benefits of a Plaquenil almost certainly outweigh the small risks to your eyes. Jan 24, 2020 Summary Eye pain is found among people who take Plaquenil, especially for people who are female, 60+ old, have been taking the drug for 10+ years, also take medication Enbrel, and have Pain. If you take Plaquenil for your inflammatory disease, your ophthalmologist will check for damage to the retina in the back of the eye while you take the drug.

    My mother was diagnosed with Plaquenil Toxicity in 2007 she first noticed changes in 2006, although being followed by her eye doctor they failed to notice this as Plaquenil TX until it was to late. I'm hoping to find people who have recovered from the eye damage.

    One of the reasons that physicians feel comfortable in prescribing Plaquenil is its low risk to benefit ratio. This means that the side effects of Plaquenil are mild and infrequent compared with its potential benefits. As with any medication, allergic reactions including skin rashes and non-allergic reactions can occur. Plaquenil can produce pigment changes in the macula of the retina. The retina is the part of the back of the eye that you see with. The macula is the central part of the retina responsible for central fine vision. With Plaquenil related toxicity, the pigment in the macula can change and alter vision by producing blurring and distortion of objects. Jun 13, 2019 If you take Plaquenil, it is important to see an ophthalmologist while you take this medicine. What happens if retinal damage is found? If your ophthalmologist finds any signs of retinal damage, he or she will tell your primary care doctor or inflammatory disease specialist to stop Plaquenil treatment immediately.

    Hydroxychloroquine Reviews Everyday Health PLAQUENIL brand-name is fantastic, however the generic Hydroxychloroquine is awful! I took brand-name for 2 years and my SLE was well-managed and I wasn’t having side effects. Then the brand name was switched by my pharmacy to the generic hydroxychloroquine and it was one of the worst experiences.
