    For awhile I was on methotrexate and had to go in every month to have my liver checked. I hated injecting myself every week, but that is what it took to feel better. I have been very blessed that I no longer have to take it. I guess that is why I am such a big fan of the plaquenil, it is so much milder than the methotrexate. Plaquenil has never raised my liver enzymes and I have been on it for six years. The only time my ALT and AST were elevated when I was taking too much iron supplements for my anemia. Once I stopped those, the enzymes went back to normal. Some of the dosage forms listed on this page may not apply to the brand name Plaquenil. For the Consumer.
