    Not diagnosed with rd but on methotrexate and plaquenil


    There have been a number of coronavirus cases in Florida and two deaths there from the illness. Being on immunosuppressants I'm a little nervous to be travelling there.

    I was diagnosed in August 2015 and started on methotrexate immediately. I have been on it weekly ever since. So far, I have no joint damage showing up on my x-rays. I have minimal pain most days and take no other meds for RA except occasional NSAIDs. I am really glad I started methotrexate right away. I have had RA for 10 years and have been on Plaquenil pretty much the whole time. Methotrexate did not work for me and made me very nauseous. I also take 5-10 mg prednisone and an injection of Humira every week. I have had no side effects from the Plaquenil. Prednisone is a mean drug however, I can tell you this as a nurse too but I have to. Then immediately when for the drugs, colchicine, plaquenil, methotrexate. I refused until I could review the results and consider what I was being told. Turns out these drugs are for CPPD attacks which I have never had. I told her I understood that CPPD could be a symptomatic and these drugs were not appropriate.

    Am I crazy to go into an area with known cases of coronavirus? We're watching our government travel advisories and won't go if they issue anything about Florida because our travel insurance won't cover us in that case.

  7. Feb 16, 2018 I was started on Plaquenil right after my diagnosis of RA. Helped a little but not enough. Added Prednisone still not working enough. Added methotrexate pills started working better. Added Humira working a little better but still swelling in joints. Switched to Embrel had bad side effects.

    I was diagnosed with RA in march and have been on increasing dose of methotrexate. Yesterday my rheumatologist started me on hydroxychloroquine as well. Is anyone else on this combination and have you had any problems with it as I know hydroxychloroquine can cause eye sight problems. Thanks I was diagnosed with RA a month ago and am returning to my Rheumatologist tomorrow to discuss treatment options. The doctor said that given where I am right now constant low level pain and light swelling of my hands and wrists but no joint damage showing up on xrays or the ultrasound, she gave me a choice of starting on either Plaquenil or Methotrexate. I am not sure what your question is, but Plaquenil is very well tolerated at the dose of 400 mg daily. If you are a very small person your rheumatologist may wish to decrease the daily maintenance dose, but I know that many patients are continued on the 400 mg daily dose for long periods.
