Anybody have a remedy for the plaquenil nightmares? Is it better to take it earlier in the day? I try to take it with my heaviest meal and took it last night. OMG, I had the worst nightmares!!!!! It actually has made me a tiny bit afraid of one of my friends now... Isn't that odd? It's like the feeling is still lingering with me. Goodness. I don't think I am going to take it anymore at night before bed. I really didn't have all that much to eat yesterday either, so maybe that was it. It seems to be working though. I am feeling better day by day.

I've always taken mine in the AM with breakfast, so I don't have any idea if nightmares are associated...

Hope you solve the problem quickly!

Thanks Lynn. Wow, what a horrible night. I had lunch with my friend who was in my nightmares and I felt anxious afterwards like something was going to happen to us. Won't take the pq again at night........

I didn't know plaq caused nightmares! Sorry - that would be awful. I take mine twice a day, with breakfast and with an evening snack (after dinner). These meds make it tough, some on a completely empty stomach, some on a full stomach and the rest somewhere in between!
Take care, Fran
