I was just reading that it is an immunosuppresent. I thought that people with LD should not take immune suppresants. Now i'm really confused. My LLMD has LD and she has given presentations on LD so there must be a very good reason that she has prescribed this to me.
Also reading about the side effects have gotten me really anxious about taking this. I already have ringing in my ears and flickering in my eyes, I don't want this to get worse. Also I just had a very bad reaction to a zoloft pill that I took, that doesen't help things at all . I also read that plaquenil has caused death in children that accidently took 3 or 4. Yikes! I am so sensative to meds.
I don't want to call the LLMD because I have called her 2 times lately about the zoloft episode and also about bactrim hurting my stomach. She charges me when I call her.
How many of you take plaquenil and what does your doctor say about it being an immunosuppresant?
Can someone please explain this to me???
