    Plaquenil and your eyes


    In Sjögren’s, Plaquenil is used to treat many symptoms of Sjögren’s including fatigue, joint symptoms of arthritis and arthralgias (joint pain), dry mouth and dry eyes. Similar to its use in systemic lupus erythematosus, many clinicians feel that it is useful in reducing general Sjögren’s “disease activity.” One of the reasons that physicians feel comfortable in prescribing Plaquenil is its low risk to benefit ratio.

The most common issue is damage to the retina. It can impair your color vision or damage the retinal cells particularly in the area right around the central vision.

The incidence of Plaquenil related macular problems increases.

    As with any medication, allergic reactions including skin rashes and non-allergic reactions can occur. This means that the side effects of Plaquenil are mild and infrequent compared with its potential benefits.

  7. I got tinnitus nearly a year ago and jury is out as to why. I started plaquenil in January and now my tinnitus is getting louder again. Just a thought, but I don't know about the Plaq connection. Many docs are not aware of the neurological implications of APS etc. I do know that medications can cause tinnitus and as I have had plaquenil 2 months and a spike in tinnitus I am worried about a connection as tinnitus is noted as a side effect.
