I had to go off plaqunil because my white blood count was low (1.6). I was off of it for 7 months and seriously felt horrible - tired, panic attacks left and right and super dizzy. Total nightmare. So the hematologist I was referred to said it most likely Lupus causing the low white count. Greeeeat I thought! Ugh! A hallmark of the disease. So now the rheumatologist gave the ok to go back on plaqunil and I've been on it for a week. How long till I feel better do you think? I am so sad realizing I need to be dependent on this dumb drug to live and feel better. AND I worry that being off plaqunil for those months caused more damage to my body (I had routine labs for organs) done about 1 month ago. Any advice? I would so appreciate anything. I am in the dumps today.
Love ya guys ..
