    How does plaquenil work for sjogren& 39


    In Sjögren’s, Plaquenil is used to treat many symptoms of Sjögren’s including fatigue, joint symptoms of arthritis and arthralgias (joint pain), dry mouth and dry eyes. Similar to its use in systemic lupus erythematosus, many clinicians feel that it is useful in reducing general Sjögren’s “disease activity.” One of the reasons that physicians feel comfortable in prescribing Plaquenil is its low risk to benefit ratio.

    I was diagnosed three years ago with Sjogren's syndrome by a rheumatologist. I have never been a person who took medication until now. My doctor put me on Plaquenil to maintain inflammation, Evoxac three times a day for dry mouth, and Restasis eye drops twice a day. The Restasis takes at least 6 weeks until you still start feeling the relief. Sjogren's syndrome can be difficult to diagnose because the signs and symptoms vary from person to person and can be similar to those caused by other diseases. Side effects of a number of medications also mimic some signs and symptoms of Sjogren's syndrome. Tests can help rule out other conditions and help pinpoint a diagnosis of Sjogren's. I completely agree with Lynnwood that plaquenil helps stop the progression of your disease, so the longer you wait the worse your Sjogren's becomes. Plaquenil is a fairly benign medication and was originally developed to protect against malaria. Later it was found to help autoimmune diseases. It can be months before you get relief with plaquenil.
