    After a thorough physical exam, your doctor may suggest blood tests to check for elevated levels of certain antibodies produced by the immune system. He or she may also remove a small sample of your affected skin so that it can be examined in the laboratory.

    Scleroderma may modestly benefit from d-penicillamine, relaxin, and minocycline, none of which help lupus. The prognosis of lupus is normal survival with non-organ threatenting disease, 50%, 20 year survival with heart, lung, kidney or liver involvement. I may be wrong I often am! but I think there are more listed side effects for aspirin than there are for plaquenil; and by a very long shot, it would seem to be safer than steroids, especially for scleroderma patients. Basically, plaquenil's effect is to modulate the immune system, which is something that could be quite beneficial for some of us. Rheumy started me on plaquenil and it helped with the tiredness and no energy for a while but it did not do anything for dry eyes/saliva at all so why take it. It is supposed to slow down the immune system so your problems aren't as bad.i.e. tears/saliva. But, I started getting bronchitis in Jan-April.

    In some cases, the skin problems associated with scleroderma fade away on their own in two to five years. Your doctor may also suggest other blood tests and imaging or organ-function tests to help determine whether your digestive system, heart or lungs are affected.

    Jun 27, 2018 As it happens, many drugs can cause a lichenoid reaction that results in lichen sclerosus, including plaquenil, beta blockers, and even NSAIDs. However, about 9 out of 10 times, plaquenil is effective in *treating* lichen planus, so it's sort of a double-edged sword, with the odds far in favor of plaquenil helping more than hurting. Hi, Does the drug plaquenil help with swollen eyelids? My eyelids are so swollen that I look like a prizefighter had a good time with me. My allergist gave me a gout med but my endocrinoligist took me off and said it was a dangerous medication. I am taking Zirtec D but my eyelids are very swollen. Plaquenil is what they prescribe for Lupus, Sjogren's and mild RA, so even though we aren't given the official diagnosis, we are treated the exact same. Plaquenil has been amazing for me. It does take about 3 months to notice any improvement.

    Plaquenil Withdrawal? - Sjogren's World May 15, 2015 I am not taking Plaquenil at present but ages ago, when I used to take it, my rheumataologist told me to stop it for a month or two every year. He said there was no reason to taper off it. Just stop. He did advise to taper on to it though so that the body adjusts to it slowly.
