Hello All. I hate to bring up this topic, but this is the "safest" place to do so. I started taking Plaquenill about a month ago, and generally speaking, I feel so much better. However, just about anything I eat goes straight through me, so to speak. This has caused quite a problem because I am experiencing some numbness in my lower extremeties, as well as some loss of muscle control. Not a good combination of problems! I've also lost 7 pounds in 2 weeks, I'm guessing because nothing "sticks". LOL Of course, I've often wondered about Celiac Disease, so I guess that could be part of the problem too.
Is there anything I can take/do to make the side effects of Plaquenill not quite so severe? Is there another drug like Plaquenill that might work better?
Thanks, everyone! Stay strong!
