I was on 400 mgs of plaquenil and we've cut it back to 200 mgs. However, I am still having a problem with it giving me depression, anxiety and bad moods. Does anyone else have this problem?? I haven't taken it in a while and now my RA seems to be flaring. My hands and feet are hurting and fingers are swollen. My RA is very mild but I know I need something. At first I thought antidepressants were just not working for me anymore, but now I realize that it's the plaquenil interfering with my moods. Any thoughts for me? They don't think my RA is bad enough to go on methotrexate yet. Thanks and Happy 4th of July!!!
