    Plaquenil steroids


    So I'm on Prednisone again after weaning off of it. thanks, nev There could be many reasons why you were put back on Prednisone. I don't get many side effects generally, but with prednisone I DO. It does help, but this can't be a long term affair. Plaquenil is a great drug (I have no experience with it, but many people with lupus take it). I'd ask your rheumy about it and have them explain why they made that choice for you. Prednisone is an intermediate acting corticosteroid-which means it has direct anti-inflamitory properties that take effect begining in a few hours.

    I had some issues with the plaquenil, nausea and extremity swelling. My rheumy told me that he has never had anyone have leg and hand swelling on plaquenil but he does not doubt it is from the plaquenil. I'm off the prednisone and must say that I am working on adapting to the plaquenil because I can tell it is helping. The prednisone is a steriod and the plaquenil is a anti malaria drug. The thing with plaquenil for me is that I don't notice much of anything taking it but when I go off then I flare up and then really notice it. I have been taking the plaquinil for about 8 years morning and night and the prednisone off and on. Brand names for prednisone include Deltasone, Rayos, and Prednisone Intensol. Plaquenil and belong to different drug classes. Plaquenil is an antimalarial medication and prednisone is a glucocorticoid. Side effects of Plaquenil and prednisone that are similar include nausea, vomiting, or headache.

    Plaq is a longer time medication it may take two months before their is a noticable difference. Is plaquenil another option instead of the prednisone? It is ment to get this undercontrol now and diminish your pain.
