    Plaquenil or methotrexate


    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. She went over some info on each drug and then gave me some time to think about which would be better for me. My largest concerns center around the side effects of each...

Side effects can be severe and. more Prescribed for Lyme Disease - Arthritis, Dermatomyositis, Malaria Prevention, Malaria, Rheumatoid Arthritis. The study is based on hydroxychloroquine sulfate and methotrexate sodium the active ingredients of Plaquenil and Methotrexate, respectively. Other drugs that have the same active ingredients e.g. generic drugs or brand names are also considered.

    I also want to be sure that I'm taking a drug that will slow/stop the progression of the disease. With Plaquenil, the possibility of permanent vision damage scares me.

    Methotrexate Moderate Hydroxychloroquine may reduce the renal clearance of methotrexate; the exact mechanism of this interaction is unknown. The mean AUC of methotrexate was increased 52% and the mean Cmax was reduced 17% when a single dose of methotrexate was given with a dose of hydroxychloroquine 200 mg oral. Plaquenil hydroxychloroquine is an effective medication for autoimmune conditions and malaria that comes with less side effects than other DMARDs. Otrexup methotrexate is the first-choice treatment for many types of cancer and arthritis, but it has many 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
