I never had any stomach problems with plaquenil but some people have trouble depending on if they take name brand or generic because the fillers used are different. People have had problems with both so it is impossible to predict which might cause you issues. Just know if the problems are bad you might want to try the other version especially if u take generic first. Plaquenil can take up to 6 months or a year for full benefits and we often don't realize how much it is helping until we quit taking it. So try to remember how you feel now and get your eyes checked. The eye issues are actually rare. Though my new rheumy said in overweight long term patients the problems happen more often and he wants me to get my yearly check up.
