    White blood cells are the body’s main defense against infection. A reduction in the number of white blood cells is called leukopenia; a particular reduction in granulocytes is called neutropenia or granulocytopenia. Leukopenia and neutropenia are very common in active lupus, but rarely are white cell counts low enough to lead to infection. Thrombocytopenia is found among people who take Plaquenil, especially for people who are female, 60+ old, have been taking the drug for 2 - 5 years, also take medication Enbrel, and have High blood pressure Dosage for Plaquenil. The adult dose of Plaquenil to suppress malaria is 400 mg on the same day each week. The pediatric weekly suppressive dosage is 5 mg/kg of body weight. The adult dose of Plaquenil to treat an acute attack of malaria is an initial dose of 800 mg followed by 400 mg in six to eight hours and 400 mg for two more days.

    In October 2012, I was also diagnosed with Sjogrens Syndrome but, as I was already taking Plaquenil, was advised the treatment was the same for Sjogrens. I was diagnosed with discoid lupus 18 years ago and was prescribed Plaquenil, which I have taken since then.
