    How long does it take plaquenil to work for lupus


    It is a disabling and painful condition which can lead to substantial loss of mobility due to pain and joint destruction. I've been off it a few days and thankfully my plumbing is back to normal it seems and the huge acne has stopped/gone. The disease is also systemic in that it often also affects many extra-articular tissues throughout the body including the skin, blood vessels, heart, lungs, and... Since I'm a woman I managed to bypass the plumbing problems while on the prednisone (I'm on 30 mg), but you're right, the acne is BAD!! Considering the state my joints are in though, I suppose that's the least of my problems.

    How long did it take for Plaquenil to work? I'm just curious how long it took everyone to start to notice a different. My dr said it would take 6-12 weeks to start to notice anything but I only started Plaquenil 3 weeks ago and I swear I can already notice a difference. Because HCQ is formulated as a 200 mg tablet, many people taking it for lupus will take two pills per day. Those who are newly diagnosed with lupus may take 400 mg once daily for several weeks while the medication builds up in their system, and then 200–400 mg daily after that.

In some kinds of lupus, your immune system attacks your body instead of protecting it.
