Interaction between plaquenil and cellcept???

Has anyone experienced bad symptoms from taking both plaquenil and cellcept?

I recently stated taking plaquenil, along with my usual meds (warfarin, prednisone, synthroid) which I've been taking for 20 years.

After 3 mos of plaquenil, I'mexperiencing more pains, fevers, GI problems, etc.

Any help you can give me would be appreciated. ..before I tell my Rheumatologist. ..

Ok. Thanks for the advice


All of your drugs, prednisone, synthroid plaquenil and cellcept can individually cause your symptoms, quite a potent group. Your best discuss with your doctor, list all your symptoms and go through with them.

Ok...thanks for the advice.


I am back on half a plaquini. In the past I was allergic and my skin turned into black blotches. This time after 2 months. No obvious symptoms apart from a little distortion of vision which was only temporary


Thanks for the feedback.

Are you aware of the need to get an eye exam every 6-12 months, because of potential side effects?

Also, I didn't understand what you meant by "half" a Plaquenil.

Do you mean 200 mg/day?

I hope it turns out to be an effective medication for you.
