Welcome, We love our MCTD (and UCTD) members just like we do everyone else!
If you read the first thread "Lupus Resources" you will find the answers to many of your questions.
After 10+ years, I still have had no side effects from Plaquenil. Other meds are often Prednisone, Cellcept, Imuran, MTX....if varies according to your personal variety of the disease.
Also look at www.lupus.org
, then pop on back with more pointed questions!
