    Sorry to hear that you are having a lot of pain with your RA. I have lupus which mainly affects my joints and skin. I have been taking hydroxychloroquine which is the generic of plaquenil for the past three years. My rheumy recently added Imuran instead of methotrexate.

    Avoid live virus vaccines with RA. It’s important to remember that those of us living with rheumatoid arthritis who use immunosuppressant medications, such as one of the biologics or methotrexate, should avoid receiving live virus vaccines for risk of developing the infection. This is why the shingles vaccine has been off limits. Plaquenil hydroxychloroquine has been shown to improve physical function in up to 80% of patients with rheumatoid arthritis. Plaquenil hydroxychloroquine is commonly used for lupus in children because of less side effects compared to other medications. Plaquenil hydroxychloroquine helps minimize joint damage.
