    I can only tolerate one 200mg dose of plaquenil a day. I allergic to sulfa, and the full does causes my skin to break out in an itchy burning rash from scalp to toes, and everywhere in between. So, I do not have stomach issues, probably because of that. However, the methotrexate does cause some intestinal distress the following day. In the past few months I've been experiencing chronic indigestion, heartburn and stomach cramps. Dr says it isn't an ulcer, possibly a stomach virus. I'm wondering if it could be a reaction to Plaquenil. If so, this is a new symptom from a med I've been on for about 3 years. Does anyone else have stomach problems related to SLE and what kind?
