    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.

    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 By the old standards, obese people, if dosed by their actual weight, could be overmedicated, Dr. Marmor said. If you’re short, the standard prescription of 200 mg of Plaquenil, twice daily, is too much, he said. The recommended dosage is no more than 6.5 mg/kg/day, using the standard known as “ideal weight,” which factors in height. Dr. Time on Plaquenil when people have Weight loss * 1 month 0.0 %. 1 - 6 months 33.33 %. 6 - 12 months 0.0 %. 1 - 2 years 0.0 %. 2 - 5 years 0.0 %. 5 - 10 years 66.67 %. 10+ years 0.0 %.

    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.

    These are appropriate only if major organ involvement isn't present. Plaquenil is the newest & safest in the class. The drug helps with skin rashes, hair loss, mouth ulcers, joint pain & swelling, fatigue, etc. It takes perhaps 3-4 months to build up & reach full effect. GOOD NEWS hair loss & weight gain are NOT associated with Plaquenil. Severe and irreversible retinal damage has been reported with the use of hydroxychloroquine. Risk factors for retinal damage include daily doses more than 6.5 mg/kg 5 mg/kg base of actual body weight, durations of use greater than 5 years, subnormal glomerular filtration, use of concomitant drugs such as tamoxifen, and concurrent macular disease. Hence, if the loss of appetite and weight loss started after you started on this drug, then yes, it could be due to Plaquenil. However, if you had loss of appetite and weight loss before your started this drug, then the drug can aggravate the process. In this case, the cause of loss f appetite and weight loss has to be found.

Side effects can be severe and potentially fatal so a full assessment of the risks versus benefits is required before methotrexate is prescribed.

    Plaquenil and dizziness DailyStrength When I started Plaquinal I had stomach aches and nausea. My doctor told me to split the dose so I would take half in the morning and half at night. I take 400mg a day and take 200mg in the morning and 200mg at night. That fixed the problem. Maybe if you go back on it, ask if you can split it up.
