How many of you are taking plaquenil?
 What are you taking it for?
 Have you noticed any side effects?
Is there anything that it should not be mixed with?
Thanks! smilewinkgrin

georgiagirl,

Here is a great site that lists drug side effects, drug interactions and a lot more. Please let me know how you do on this drug. I'm interested in talking to my doctor about it. It may help with all the pain and inflammation I have.

I take it. I don't think it helps with my pain at all. I know when I started I had a horrible week long herx. It was really bad. Maybe it was busting the cysts. Had some tummy issues but not bad now. I think it helps more with arthritis type pain not nerve pain. Who knows I haven't noticed much difference besides the bad herxes.

You may have to copy and paste the link. It's not opening when I click on it but that's the right address.

Lovelabs,

It is an anti-malarial drug so it may have been getting rid of a co-infection maybe. Do you have any co-infections.

I tested negative for all of them. I am on mepron too. Started it again had 6 months of it. I think he is treating me as if I do have any in case. I have really bad heel pain, neck pain and I remember when I first got bit(but didn't know it) I woke up with night sweats for a whole week. Who knows if I have any, but funny my worst herxes started with mepron and then now plaquenil. Hmmm

Night sweats are a symptom of babesia and heal/foot pain are a symptom of bartonella. Maybe you do have something going on.

lovelabs, my doc. said that it is a good cyst buster ( plaquenil). That's probably what happened in your case. Take a smaller dose or take a break if the herx. gets to bad. I started bactrim today. Next will be the mepron, then artemisia and plaquenil. Yikes i'm scared.

plaquinil strips off boifilms that protect the ketes did you see the colony on under our skin that was all balled together under a slime coating well thats bio film !
 
plaquinil changes your blood ph and makes it the abx stay in your system longer and allows it to kill the ketes hiding under the bio film.

you'd think I would understand all of this by now. Don't you wonder where these biofilms are in the body? Are they only where we have pain and symptoms? Or are they everwhere or do we really know? Kind of freaky to think about. I get nervous when I think too much. Which is all the time unfortunatly.
