I had just commented on how well the Plaquenil was working in such a short time and WHAM! here comes a reaction. I started itching from the top of my head to the soles of my feet. :(
I called my Rhuemy and she said to stay off the Plaquenil for a week, and sure enough within 2 days all the itching and scratching stopped. It really bums me out but she said this does happen to some people on the drug. I'm hoping we can find a way that I can continue the drug it was really working for me. cry

I had a similar reaction and we stopped then restarted slowly, ramping up to the needed dosage. Sneaking up on it like that did the trick and I've been taking it ok ever since.
