    Hi Guys, I haven't been here for a while - just checked in and found this question on Plaquenil - for me it took approx nine weeks to begin to work - I'm only taking 200mg per day so far - it seemed to stop working a few weeks later - most days are pretty good I s'pose but I drop nearly every afternoon. How do antiviral drugs work? Antiviral drugs can also work in a number of different ways. Firstly, they can alter the structure and genetic material of the invaded cell, so the viruses can no longer use it to multiply. Sometimes the cell can work as normal after the viruses have left. For the antiviral treatment, the doctors recommended lopinavir 400mg/ritonavir 100mg Kaletra two tablets, twice a day or chloroquine 500mg orally per day." my addition I see a major problem with this prescription, regarding chloroquine. I am NOT a doctor; I just have a degree in Chemistry.

    Plaquenil for RA?" Rheumatoid Arthritis Community - Support Group 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.
