    As a result, the body produces antibodies that inflict cell damage, most commonly targeting joints, skin, kidneys and the nervous system. I think even though they say it doesn't make a difference, I feel wierd if I don't take my plaquenil sometimes. Hi want2bepainfree, If you don't have to, don't stop your plaquenil. No one knows but I cry sometimes when no one is around to see me. Hugs, Mel Hello all, I am currently new to this site and ran across the discussion about stopping Plaquenil. Join the group and find support for coping with lupus. I stopped taking the plaquenil the beginning of December. And when I'm crying like a baby--I could feel the pain just throb in me. I took plaquenil for several years, then I went to the Mayo Clinic and they didn't think I had lupus and took me off. I have been taking Plaquenil for about 8-9 months and thought that it was not helping me because I still have a fair amount of joint pain, fatigue, muscle pain and so many other issues.

    I too suddenly stopped taking mine cold turkey. Not out of choice, but because I lost my insurance and couldn't get refills. About a month after I started feeling awful!

As Tracy stated it is such as slow acting drug when you first start it, it's really hard to tell if it's working, it's not until we stop the med that we realize what a huge difference it was making.

I missed 2 doses and felt a lot of pain in my arms, and had a pretty bad couple of days. Just wondering if any of you experience any pain if you don't take a few pills.
