    Average weight loss on plaquenil


    At first it seemed like it helped now I feel the same as before I started taking the medicine other than the fact that none of my clothes fit and there is a lot more of me to carry around. Anyone know if I quit taking it if the weight will fall back off I started Hydroxychloroquine 2 weeks ago. One week in and I thought this may just work, except for the ‘extra itchiness’ I seemed to get every night.

    Plaquenil hydroxychloroquine belongs to a group of medicines called quinolines. Plaquenil is used to treat or prevent malaria, a disease caused by parasites that enter the body through the bite of a mosquito. Malaria is common in areas such as Africa, South America, and Southern Asia. Weight loss is a relatively unusual side-effect of plaquenil so I'd want to be very sure that that is what is causing the problem. I would certainly hesitate to lower the dose you are on without talking to your doc as 2x200mg is the usual dose for most people 6.5mgs per kilo ideal body weight or 3mgs per lb. The maximum dose of Plaquenil is 6.5 mg/kg of ideal body weight per day, regardless of whether a person is overweight, underweight, or normal weight. One kilogram kg equals 2.2 pounds. Women with lupus who are OVER their ideal body weight should go by these dosing rules

    I was prescribed this drug to ease my ra disease, I was taking 400mg per day which was to last for 3 months then reduced to 200mg. Right before I hit the two week mark, I woke up with my heart racing and continued feeling my heart flutter all day and I just felt week and tired. After msging Rheum, decided to stop taking meds to see how I feel and continue with the AIP to handle symptoms and try to work at ‘healing from inside out! Time will tell and I’m eager to see how much the AIP is helping once odd meds.

    Plaquenil has been the one and only drug I've taken, but aside from weight gain, I was getting migraines that made me feel like I was dying, my vision was immediately affected blurry, photosensitive, my gums were bleeding, I was dizzy all the time and always has a terrible sore throat - not to mention the nightmares from Hell every night. Regular plaquenil eye exams should quell concerns about eye complications, which are very rare. I was advised to take it at bed time, so I would sleep through any other side effects it might cause me, but I never noticed any side effects at all -- except feeling a lot better, less fatigue, less joint pain, and fewer issues overall. The adult dose of Plaquenil to suppress malaria is 400 mg on the same day each week. The pediatric weekly suppressive dosage is 5 mg/kg of body weight. The adult dose of Plaquenil to treat an acute attack of malaria is an initial dose of 800 mg followed by 400 mg in six to eight hours and 400 mg for two more days.
