    Natural alternatives to plaquenil


    Although I take Enbrel, and MTX, neither one work as well as the Plaquenil and the fatigue and joint pain have returned full force. I had to get off of plaquenil as well b/c of toxicity and benign tumors behind my eyes. I'm just wondering if any of you here have had to stop taking Plaquenil and if so what you replaced it with? Not knowing what your dx is, I don't know what to tell you. I haven't found a replacement except that I started my cytoxan every month now.

    I'm still searching for that magic "all natural" replacement since I cannot tolerate plaquenil. The stomach, liver & eye complications are too great to bear. and that's at the lowest, lowest dose. Anyway, guess I need to get into some deeper research about exactly what this drug does, and. Rheumatoid arthritis is a chronic disorder for which there is no known cure.

    I also seem to be having a lot of anxiety and I never had this before I stopped my Plaq Am I just losing my mind? All I can do is offer you my sympathy and suggest you talk to your rheumy or hope that others here have an answer for you. I found that some of my symtoms came back after I got off of plaquenil too but I never found something to really "replace it" unforntunately. Yes I do get some kind of strange migraines but without the pain??? (If anything) Since stopping it even the sun is now my worst enemy and I have had to get a pair of sun glasses.. Hi momto3, Wow, I hate to hear that you had to stop taking plaquenil. Since you're taking Enbrel and MTX, I suppose you have RA and I can't imagine having that and not being able to take plaquenil. I have suffered with migraines for thirty years and the only true relief I've ever gotten are from accupuncture and immitrex. I've had other problems as well but I don't think those would help you b/c they are more related to SLE.
