    Hydroxychloroquine 200 mg does it make u gain weight


    Part of that is due to less exercise, part due to having no appetite thus feeling like anything I can get down is ok. Well, now I've been exercising at almost my pre-Lupus rate (ran a marathon a year before), eating a more moderate diet (clean protein, vegs & fruits), and am no longer taking that weight & bloat causing Prednisone (off Pred almost 2 yrs now). My question: Do you feel like you've gained weight on Plaquenil (ie without Prednisone)?

    Hydroxychloroquine is generally prescribed at a daily dose of 6.5 milligrams or less per kilogram of body weight. Using this formula, the dosage for a 150-pound person would be 443 mg/day, as one kilogram equals 2.2 pounds. Because HCQ is formulated as a 200 mg tablet, many people taking it for lupus will take two pills per day. For the treatment of RA, hydroxychloroquine is typically taken by mouth once daily at 200-400 mg, although it can be taken at a higher dose. A loading dose of 1,200 mg daily, given for 6 weeks may decrease the time to clinical response. However, experts debate that this higher dosage may increase the risk of toxicity. Applies to hydroxychloroquine oral tablet. Along with its needed effects, hydroxychloroquine may cause some unwanted effects. Although not all of these side effects may occur, if they do occur they may need medical attention. Check with your doctor immediately if any of the following side effects occur while taking hydroxychloroquine

    My Lupus has been really quiet for about 2 yrs, and I'm afraid to change anything. The Plaquenil drug side effects list weight loss, but some people have reported weight gain instead. My rheumy wants me to come down and then off my Plaquenil, but I've been resisting simply because I'm afraid to.

    Lynwood, I can't answer your question about weight gain or loss on plaquenil but I did go off plaquenil a few months ago and haven't been the same since. I regret the decision which had I made because I'd felt pretty well for quite some time and was doing my best to slowly get off as many meds as possible.
